In this video work Bob Bicknell-Knight utilises footage from Dahir Insaat, a corporation and creative company that produces speculative animations as visual proposals to various governments and corporations around the world. The videos usually employ gravity and logic defying creations, from gyroscopic transportation devices to air dropped, drone activated, weaponry. The footage is foregrounded by an animated breaking news bar, supplying a continuous flow of ambiguous anti-capital texts, quoting various philosophers and writers.
