Lee Haxton

Inspired by George Orwell’s novel 1984, ‘Don’t feed the Proles!’ is a suite of interdisciplinary, multimedia artworks drawing aesthetically from the graphical worlds of Futurism and Russian Constructivism. The works play satirically with the notion of a dystopian and totalitarian future, focusing on Orwellian concepts such as Big Brother, Doublethink, Newspeak and the surveillance device the ‘Telescreen’. The project has been realised through combined methods of graphic design, illustration, 3D modelling and animation and is a playful and imaginative exploration into how various media might present itself in such a dissonant world.
