MORALITY COLLECTIVE, invites the reader into a formal assemblage of short stories and narrative prose, interlaced with graphic visuals and visual art. The multiplicity of voices throughout the Reader find themselves intrigued by the thematic ideas of morality as a collective tactic, awkwardly wedged in the contemporary media moment. Morality evolution theories are teased with mini-dramas and short essays. Puzzling evidence is collected, forensic analysis- inconclusive.
The Graphic Reader recruits the humor of newsy reportage to sift the anxious resolve we employ to achieve temporarily what we believe it means to be a proper, social being.
MORALITY COLLECTIVE animates characters that scavenge the omnipresent veneer of social aesthetics in search of a decent enough story to perform for the enterprising and curious reader.
"The essays, exhibition novels and graphic readers insist that the multiplicity of characters wrestle with their own aesthetic equations which they've designed for themselves."
Many of the short stories in the Reader are so pleasantly inconsequential, it's as if the characters are more-or-less waiting, somehow expecting to extricate themselves from the foul air of media culture.
