Synthesised from newspaper cuttings, Plastique Fantastique is a hand drawn comic book, scanned and coloured by computer. The comic is a future orientated utopian fiction: a satire, allegory and proposition. The comic book details the actions of a guerrilla group whose ultimate goal is the destruction of faciality and figure and ground relationships. Attempting to put the group's manifesto into practice, they experiment with mirror-travel, self-fashioning and new assemblages, to wage a campaign against officers of the law, line managers, metrosexuals and other agents of everyday life. The comic was given away free to visitors to East
