The Durian Puff
Merlin and Daniel’s artwork mimics The Onion as a satire news website, utilizing the unique attributes of an online space – an interconnected interactive public virtual area. This project employ the use of contemporary journalism, mockumentary, and comedy-satire shows such as “The Noose” (2007-present). The final concept explore the idea of our consumerist culture if money does grow on tree and questioning this in context to the massive deforestation problem in this era right now.  This artwork is the duo’s commentary on the relationship of the struggle between nature and the rising population, and the strain it puts on Earth’s natural resources.
