The Art of Conflict
Does humanity thrive on conflict? This work is a montage of conflicts, disagreements, and war. Exposing humanity at its most vulnerable and beautiful, most destructive and ugly. Following the stories of a group of individuals who are the representation of mankind on Earth. Set in the gritty inner city of London, plagued by capitalism and materialistic greed, technological advancements that remove us from reality and numbingly steal our independence. We follow these individuals as they navigate this harsh world that was designed to divide and conquer them. Filled with conflict, internal strife, global scale wars, every day is filled with new tabloids of destruction and death. This is a world where the devil who cometh to steal, kill and destroy has fully been loosed, the only way to fight against such evil is to search oneself and find the spark of life, love, and understanding to finally end the conflict.
