"Bricolage:[mass noun] (in art or literature) construction or creation from a diverse range of available things:... [count noun] something constructed or created from a diverse range of things: bricolages of painted junk"

This project focuses on the tobacco industry with particular emphasis on the idea that it capitalizes on consumer addiction while evading culpability. The aptness of this study's particular focus is contingent on a few points. One point being the societal predisposition to associate a blame with the product rather than its' producer. The current lack of visual recognition of cigarette factories thus is the main focus in exploring the materiality or face of tobacco.
