Printed page from an unknown magazine with elements added by artist Roger Morris. Morris has prepared the page with a textured coating, giving it a grainy look that resembles the surface of the moon.

A stencil showing two human figures has been applied with white spray paint on the left.

Near the centre of the image a figure is shown in the Mercury spacecraft. The figure is isolated and threatened by corporate forces. American symbolism, including a star and three stripes, features on a black curve of land. A meteor streaks across the sky on the left of the image and a boat is sinking in the bay. The print is rendered predominantly in yellows, reds, black, green and white.
Framed oil on canvas that explores a range of subjects. A blue line, which represents a river, divides the composition into two halves. A 'cancerous' red dot is present in the river near the upper horizontal edge. The background of the two halves is painted in bright yellow. The top left of the composition features a television shape with a red/pink vase decorated with Roger Morris' symbol for fascism (the symbol is based on the stylised shape of a figure holding a gun). A line of four facsist symbols are repeated below. The two triangle shapes beneath the television represent a cattle ramp. A figure with its hands tied behind its back is pictured below. The figure takes its inspiration from the first dead body Roger Morris encountered when he was a policeman. Top right of the composition features two fascist symbols facing each other, which creates a kind of stylised Māori face. Beneath is a night landscape with the moon. Four fascist symbols mirror the four on the opposite side of the composition. Beneath the night landscape is a simplified shape in red/pink that represents a carcass. Bottom right of the composition shows a figure standing in a black oval.
