WE LIVE IN YOUR WORLD

Mandy Pryse-Jones and Simon Savage
2015

This work consists of a video installation that investigates the idea of a collective consumer idiocy. Amongst other elements, flying craft seen in the video are abstractions of bank buildings. The coloured lines seen in the video represent growth from this relationship, for better or worse. We are massaged into an acceptance of the behaviours and rhetoric of corporate institutions, which persuade us that such institutions are relevant, necessary, and constructive; and therefore enhance our lives. This video installation investigates the relationship between the supplier and the consumer. The supplier uses media that typically focuses on family, community and stability. The consumer is answerable to all. We are part of the problem as well as the solution.
