‘Headlies’ is a text and visual project that uses real newspaper headlines but the stories beneath them are fabricated and fictional. Newspapers often take sides and we, the reader, judge on humanity from its text and photograph. From the newspaper’s perspective, access to public information is a good thing but a newspaper’s function surely is to tell the society about itself and to be a pollinator of its information? Its role is to inform the citizens but as information gradually travels down, the citizens become ill-advised, ill-prepared and mis-informed.

The few men who were interviewed, one being David Smith of Northwarrick said that “I’m fine about it now because I was always seeing beautiful women around me all the time and they just give me the horn so it’s a good thing.” One of the reasons that the women have formed their own club is because they were tired of the consistent unfaithfulness of their husbands and the dishonesty. “At least we can do what they did now and to be fair, it’s a better world not to be tied down to one person, in fact it’s a thrill to chase and be chased,” says Cheerie Donahue, one of the members.
