This is a collection about the media, the environment and the whole of humanity at the brink of extinction. As the demands of overpopulation and an unsustenaible consumer economy dry up existing natural resources and destroy vital ecosystems that we need to survive, the corporate-controlled media saturate worlwide audiences with a barrage of hypnotic images and narratives to stimulate over-consumption and to distract us from the consequences of rampant consumerism, while remaining silent about the systematic destruction of the environment and our future.

Abstract

This is a collection about the media, the environment and the whole of humanity at the brink of extinction. As the demands of overpopulation and an unsustenaible consumer economy dry up existing natural resources and destroy vital ecosystems that we need to survive, the corporate-controlled media saturate worlwide audiences with a barrage of hypnotic images and narratives to stimulate over-consumption and to distract us from the consequences of rampant consumerism, while remaining silent about the systematic destruction of the environment and our future.
