Behind the Mall is an exploration of the visual propaganda of mobile food advertising. Its central theme is the industrialization of our food and the dulling of our perception to a point where we are removed from any direct knowledge of our food production. It is also intended to reveal both the humour and irony in our everyday landscape that are not always immediately evident.
