The Spectacle is a multimedia experience that lifts the veil on how powerful interests manipulate public discourse and perception to manufacture the consent and compliance of the American people.
It exposes our numbing addiction to the rituals of our new religion, Technology, and uncovers how the establishment uses ‘spectacle’ to enact policies that benefit them, while leading us to believe that it’s all done in our best interest.
The project uses familiar imagery from TV news, advertising, films, politics, celebrity culture, and war propaganda to expose the underlying forces driving the extreme militarism, rampant consumerism, and deep-seated nihilism infusing modern society.
The Spectacle brings all of this to life with searing social criticism, video, original music, live performance, and insightful discussion. It immerses us in the barrage of media and messaging that we receive every day, and leaves us questioning our own complex relationship with power, technology, and personal freedom.
