MA work

Sun sets upon tarmac and wide-eyed kidults come out to play; frolicking in the shadows of neon light they act out their own ersatz rock ‘n’ roll fantasies, where reality and fiction collide in chemically fuelled narratives of faux decadence.

They are the real sons and daughters of capital, their branded screams echo banshee-like against the tenements and shopping centres.

Trapped in a culture that feeds them false promises en masse, escape from such daily horror is sought through binge-drinking, dancing, shopping and fucking.
