Deconstruction of America: a critical view on the American society by Mike Campau

Deconstruction of America is a series of photographic compositions by American freelance designer, illustrator, and art director Mike Campau. It is, in essence, according to its pretension, a critique and a wake-up call to the contemporary problems facing American society: government corruption, broken legal system, religion (or lack thereof), poor nutrition, the clash of values of the generation “look for me” from YouTube and the apathy and disinterest that most citizens ended up acquiring through mass crimes and shootings.

I never talk politics on social media (or even with friends) as it usually leads to a heated discussion, hurt feelings, and a few “F” bombs. So, I decided to convey my thoughts through images. Whether you are liberal or conservative, we can all agree there are some major problems facing our country right now. Everything from government corruption, broken justice system, religion (or lack thereof), poor diet and nutrition, the shock value “look at me” YouTube generation, and how we have all become desensitized and almost apathetic in our response to hate crimes and mass shootings. I’m not here to get on a soapbox and say who is right or wrong, but to invoke a sense of urgency to make a change before it’s beyond repair. The images use a visual metaphor of a living tree being cut down, disassembled into logs, and burned to the point where it has little to no value.
