"The Hollow Men" explores conditions of miscommunication, impotence and isolation through a landscape of infrastructural lattice towers and digital audio mis-readings from T.S. Eliot's poem. "The Hollow Men" is about being in an in-between state and finding out that is has been our own inability to act, unwillingness to think self-critically that has led to this impasse. Without decisive action, without command of ourselves, we fall into the wasteland. Eliot's fear is a world ended not by the violence of a few, but through the inaction and apathy of many.
