We Own This Country & The Death Urge
We Own This Country The Death Urge These are the collage illustrations I made back in September for two of the books I was working on at the time. These images work well with the texts they were constructed to illustrate, but I wanted to present them here independently as I think they hold up rather well on their own as images. Debord, while very critical of the preponderance of images and the negation of language and complex thought in contemporary culture, made a distinction between false and truthful images. I believe these pictures that I'm presenting here are true reflections of contemporary North American Society and its dominant Spectacle.
