The Spectacle of rejection
Video. 1 channel, 16:9, color, sound, duration 00.03.14.
Cultural artistic centre exQ, Sassari, Italy.
In collacboration with Astral Tribe.
Starting from the analysis of the concept of spectacle theorized by Guy Debord (Paris, 1931 - Bellevue-la-Montagne, 1994), the work emphasizes how nowadays such theory ended up as part of the same spectacle it used to criticize, being retrieved and overthrown by the same repressive logic that situationists have been fighting.
The video is a series of personal brain scans that follow a quasi-mesmerizing rhythm, repeted in a fast sequence over a loud electronic music created by the musician Astral Tribe.
The work is nothing but the umpteenth spectacular image that complies with the media chaos.
