In this artwork created as a music video for the band The Foundry Field Recordings, Tyrone Davies tells the story of the rise and fall of clones in a fictional future, but a future grounded in our reality. He reappropriates existing material such as television footage of war, talking heads, political news, action cartoons, and sports and blends them into a seamless and provocative tale revealing our infatuation with technology and how we seek to use it. But in the end, the technology turns back on its creators in a reflection of those consuming desires.
