Edgar Moreno explores British war mentality from King Harold's wounded eye in 1066 to the recent war-like campaingns against France's mad-cow response. At Gasworks, Moreno produced 'From the Lambs' eye to the Cowhide' based on research into media images dealing with strong images of war and their social effects.

His work draws attention to recent gigantic posters advertising 'War in Colours, not Black and White' using images of war in Vietnam and Hiroshima to advertise newspapers and magazines. Edgar Moreno shows a view of London where 30% of its tourist attactraction are based on war.

Luis Romero and Edgar Moreno's residencies were supported by A4E and The British Council Venezuela.
