THE DAILY SHOW

At the end of the day, what you rush home to get to is an electronic reproduction of life. You cannot touch it; it doesn't smell and has no taste … it turns out to be this purely passive contemplation of a twittering screen. - Alan Watts

THE DAILY SHOW collection shows the disconnect between reality and the mind-numbing dullness that arises from evenings glued to the television. Alternative pattern making techniques and draped elements create warped and glitch-like forms showing what happens to a mind soaked in media. To complete the social comment, The Daily Show is imbued with intrigue and humour making it hard to look away.
