The French artist WK Interact played on the theme of how violence is used the mass media, advertising and film in a suprising manner.
He made use of film stills from commericals and Hollywood films which he manipulated using a technique he developed himself which involved xeroxing, moving and distorting images. Subsequently these images were able to be painted or adhered in the outdoor spaces. Thus, he formulated a response to stereotypical violence in the entertainment industry.
