The “Drink Crude Oil” print uses torn ad posters as a metaphor for the competing fragmented messages we are all confronted with daily. A lot of our habits are reinforced by the ubiquity and consistency of propaganda around certain products. For example, consuming oil and gas is presented as part of the good life along side drinking Coca-Cola. Rather than always swallowing, I think it is important to comb through the competing messages with caution.
