DESCRIPTION

Celebrity. Plastic surgery. Fear.


Fear of questions. Fear of thought. Fear that something different must be wrong. I drive the streets of cities and see strip malls, corporate conglomerates erasing the regionalism of our nation. Clothing, books, movie houses. There is no regional identity and we wonder why life is boring and we retreat into "Second-lives" and social media proclamations of having "the best times of our short lives."

READ ALL OVER serves as a celebration of deeper thought. The novel, the newspaper, the written word in general. From literature to pulp, we investigate the items in our society that do a lot of the investigating for us. Inspired by books, their cover art, the stories they tell, or what their readers might actually be seeking.

 

READ ALL OVER is also serving as an investigation of what people are reading, why they are reading and what they hope to get out of those books.
