Dealing with diverse themes including consumerism, the cults of celebrity and personality, junk food news and environmentalism, ‘Herd Society’ constructs a projected future with which to satirise their absurdities. Using imagery drawn from both historical sources and contemporary media, this darkly humorous world holds up a distorted mirror to our own and invites us to laugh at ourselves.
