Collaboration with Edward Gillman

 

Prospoieesee Post is a newspaper documenting the real events of a fictional micro nation. Prospoieesee, a nation state within the walls of Central Saint Martins, Kings Cross, was a short term collective of Fine Art students. The state newspaper documents the ephemeral existence of an isolated community bound together by 20 squared metres of turf. The content crosses between a document of the real events and the fictional characters and consequences played out for the camera by the citizens. The paper examines both the format of news media and the construction of national identity with mounting cynicism yet it stays true to the playful nature of the original project.
