A pair of artists, in the name of a "social commentary" on video game violence, have decided to start playing Grand Theft Auto V as a serial killer. Complete with motive and costume. And document the whole thing.

Look at the images enough times and your thoughts on the whole thing will likely have flip-flopped a few times. Is it funny, because it's GTAV and he's wearing a mask? Is it satire, because the game's about being a psycho? But then, if the game's supposed to be satire, what is this?

You sort it out. That's the whole point.

The "before" shots certainly lend the whole thing a decidedly creepy vibe, though.
