Twenty three black and white photographs of an early 70's brutalist-style public sector office being demolished over a period of months. The pictures are juxtaposed with lines of increasingly meaningless management speak. Soulless buzzphrases for the sound bite society. The reality and the illusion. The fact that the building is actually being demolished in reverse introduces an ambiguous note of hope.
