Adrian Sarpong works for the mayor as a community observer. His mind has become troubled. He ponders why fresh, new designs are lacking from society when technology allows for so much more than recycled ideas. Adrian is also troubled by the impact of the internet on his friend Al, his duplicitous employers, and cheating girlfriend. Modern Mania explores prevalent early twenty-first-century themes, including the manipulation of consumer products for terror and our ambivalent relationship with the internet.
