Frank & Mimi investigate the hyper-optimism that comes from vintage advertorials, and how they’re often ironically selling products which are detrimental to both the consumer and the environment. The artists make a satirical comment about consumption by marrying typography with a fallen media icon, as the coral begins to reclaim its natural environment to regain equilibrium. The shapes appear collaged, almost as if cut out of vintage paper, highlighting the risk of our marine life disappearing into nostalgia.
