"This piece was created in autumn of 2006. I remember because there was a deer park nearby and it was rutting season. Rutting stags make a really weird noise. I'd read a number of very depressing books about the inevitable collapse of our civilisation and I was trying to make pictures that represented huge shopping malls, endless car parks, interminable housing tracts, degraded landscapes and so on. At the time Radiohead were working on a track called Down Is The New Up, and as a consequence I made a sort of house-emblem consisting of two arrows - down and up - and was using it extensively. The running figure in the painting is (I think) from an American road sign. Road signage was a form I copied from widely. This painting was one of the more humane images I made during that period." - Stanley Donwood
