I wrote this piece for the We Portal live stream which took place in January 2017. The title is inspired by an episode of Look Around You Rose D’or winning and BAFTA nominated comedy series for BBC2. written, produced and featuring Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz.

The front page headlines for the accompanying video were taken from British Newspaper's published between July 2016 and 2017. I chose these headlines deliberately for the lack of specificity and resonance across a global landscape of political and social upheaval. Finding a U.K. front page headline that did not refer to Brexit nor Trump was much harder than i first imagined!

you will find my conversation with Robert Popper in the drop down menu. the audio work was installed at East Side Projects, Birmingham as part of a SyllabusII project, February 2017
