These prints are part of a new series I am just starting, about how the capitalist machine shapes all our lives. The drawings age and complexity try to explain using a visual metaphor in some small way how I feel about the machine I'm trying to represent using a visual image. They are roughly based on a computer game called "the incredible machine" or T.I.M. for short as an influential starting point and sub reference some styles of 60's illustrations from Monty Python to the wall animations and illustration by Gerald Scarfe. The use of ink jet prints is deliberate in order to show the infinitely reproducible nature, of both the machine I'm imagining, and the level of reproduction government and mass production attempt to achieve, it's a sad fact that the cheapest thing for any government to reproduce is people, We do this for free with no capital investment from corporation, making us in reality have less capitalist worth than a tank or bomb.
