The work of Corey J. Willis takes a satirical look at monotony through digital photo-collage. Presenting large-scale images of nutritionally bankrupt foods, Willis connects tooth decay to mental decay. There is a design to the mundane and Willis seeks to expose it. Inspired by mental disease, consumerism, global warming, and the superficial; he shows images connecting frootloops to male colorblindness and popsicles to depression. From fruitstripe gum barometers to poptart calendars, Willis sees the inane in the mundane.
