The goal of the work of art is the production of a cohesive object that becomes a significant form by succeeding in its development of an ideological thought. The concern chosen dwells in the arena of psychological implications that result from societal beliefs through the medium of printed advertisements. The idea found form in the production of mock billboards and newspapers in a pseudo-collage that further undergo metamorphosis when accumulated and installed in a space. Production included the accumulation of large amounts of source materials from newspapers and billboards which were reorganized so text and images juxtapose each other in form and content.
