There are 3 explosion footages in extreme slow motion. Using Max/MSP/Jitter, I created the effect of 2 explosion clouds of different colors merging to form a black one. I imagine myself doing what the capitalists do to act as a manipulator and design images whereby real meanings and nature of things are distorted. Ironically, with the music (Dream by John Cage) and color, the explosion, originally a lethal and terrible thing, becomes poetry or a painting with spreading ink. I have also removed the context: everything except the explosion clouds has been deleted from the scene.I substitute the pleasure of seeing for the contemplation on the horror of violence. But isnt that what advertising does?
