Fears of Today, - 2010
The text is an excerpt from Adolus Huxley, Ape and Essence (1948) which was spotted on a torn flyer in a derelict back street in South-End-On-Sea, an ageing town on the Essex coast. The words by Huxley spoke of the fears of society in post WWII, the fact that this section of the text of the book had been printed and stuck on a wall in a rundown area of an English town with the scratched words 'Greed' added, spoke of the fears of society today.
