Learning to tie a rope

This collage series was made from a single paper edition of The Guardian. Each collage is comprised of two elements: Iraq War imagery and food. These works highlight how war stories function as leisurely reading in Western societies, responding to the disheartening nonchalance in which violence, voyeurism, consumption and forgetfulness are interwoven in casual reading.
