By 1978, Flaxton had become highly critical of the media and sought to create a didactic no-nonsense critique of the way the media generates bias against what it has been set up to work against. This work comes to the conclusion that the media itself is society’s basic governing value system reflecting and propagandising for the values of society – in a way similar to the way society does so in George Orwell’s 1984 (an issue returned to by Flaxton as part of Triple Vision in the 1983/84 work Prisoners). Talking Heads won 4th Prize in the 1979 Tokyo Video Festival.
