STATE OF DECAY looks at the literal and metaphoric concept of deterioration within life and imagery. The ever-impending feeling of both existing and ending, and the effect we have on the all the elements that go together to make the world we live in. The artists involved all differently communicate this aesthetic or ideology, displaying their thoughts on decomposition, mortality, decay and adverse experimentation within their visual and audio practices, whilst also simultaneously communicating how a human might feel, operating on a day-to-day basis- within this decaying and rotting earth.

STATE OF DECAY embodies the conscious & unconscious impact of living, the outcome of death, the emotional mindset associated with it all & the visual effects that fading, ageing, rotting, wear, time or hand can have on an image and the mind.
