EYES ALWAYS LIE
Cover image for Report (Insert link)
The room is filled with individuals wearing suits, their eyes fixated solely on profit. The western male business attire, eyes looking all ways, a central, single female, all framed by roses, all bring different points of view. The intense focus on financial gain fuels the machinery of Western capitalism and a patriarchal society, leading to the exploitation of people, animals, and the environment. This perpetual search for wealth predominantly benefits only a privileged few. This mixed-media illustration serves as a powerful reminder for us to recognise the pervasive inequalities present in our immediate surroundings. It urges us to cultivate self-awareness and to recognise the alienation that results from unequal social and economic structures.
