Sweet dreams

This piece was inspired by Norman Mailer; a contemporary American social philosopher; who quoted: “The Russians failed to brainwash their people. Unfortunately we made it. We are a nation that masturbates 24 hours a day in front of the internet and television”. This installation represents the apathy, the alienation and torpor of the everyday person. As a passive recipient of daily life and constantly bombarded by useless images and insufficient information he fails to react. He freezes, becomes frightened, distancing himself from the events and tracks everything mechanical. He becomes antisocial, alienated and adopts technology as an integral piece of his life substituting human contact and direct communication.
