Foreword by James Harvey (the creator of the GAIMAN award-nominated short Masterplasty)
"You know Kago’s iconic image of a head exploding and it being filled with cheap plastic junk,
mass-produced goods? The reason it's horrifying is because it suggests that we aren’t that special.
As a civilisation we mass-produce plastic shit because we are mass-produced shit.
We are a joke told through our pointless repetitive lives,
and it’s that black joke that’s at the heart of Shintaro Kago’s work."-David Surman, from James Harvey's foreword
