The project consists of 10 collages made of empty pharmaceutical packets in the form of diverse countries’ flags. The set of works is an ironic comment on certain issues of contemporary global consumer culture, a culture that creates an illusion of happiness within arm’s reach, but instead abuses the ways of improving the quality of our lives, leading itself to slow self-destruction. The project’s name, Brand New World, refers to Aldous Huxley’s anti-utopian novel Brave New World.
