So glamorous

  1. Politics pictures go very well with luxury pictures, the music is from TV program Dallas

  2. Art shouldn't be so prone to Power. These ways of portraying Power make it more appealing - (naturally) positive - and redirects emotional consensus towards politics and (aiming this consensus toward a single person) politicians. Power is not a soap opera.
    In this work you put together things which are strongly positive for the most of the people (I mean luxury stuff) and politicians without any critic. Doing so you create consensus, because everyone looking at this video will (naturally) redirect this positiveness toward politicians. In Italy we have Berlusconi. He made a lot of money in the '80 showing Dallas and Dinasty to Italians. 20 years after he REALLY IS Dallas and Dinasty, and rules Italy. This is americanization of politics. These are the new ways of shaping consensus. If you agree with my point of view, let's put some critical element in this association.
