Press Release for 'Stick a Fork in it'
The world has seen an increasing amount of changes to beliefs and social systems. The realm of sport offers a refuge and a simple model for lifestyle, behaviour and relationships. It espouses values that are now found with politics, business and family. We yearn to belong to something bigger then oneself. A power is achieved through this collectivism. This equates to an individuals' self-worth and control within his own personal sphere. Our collectivism is defined more and more by what we are against, than what we are for. Conflict and antagonism, born from a mutated form of binary competition, is now our discourse.
