Part documentary, part commentary, part allegory, Platter investigates a contemporary reality stranger than any fiction, through the construction of signs, signifiers, and symbols. Exploring subjects personal, political, and anecdotal; he examines, with idiosyncratic dark humour, the state of present-day South Africa; overrun by excess, greed, and empty promises in the rampant, dumbed-down drive to consume. Working from everyday interaction with transitory subjects and sources on the outside periphery of popular culture, he infuses the ordinary with hallucinatory new meaning.Platter's unique vision; transitive, violent, cynical, collaborative, and critical is channeled into seemingly divergent, absurdist and irreverent works. Each exactingly, and labour-intensively woven together to create a mind-map collage of contemporary morality.
