all social processes are determined by economic interests. attractiveness and consumability are expected and offered. everything is pleasant, entertaining, understandable, calculable and in conclusion: positive.
everything is 'attractive'.
this philosophy of service has infiltrated all areas of life. the resulting consumerism determines our thoughts, emotions and actions: our culture.
a shift in perception has occurred: illusion is becoming increasingly more beautiful and the reality uglier. reality is rejected and ignored. the illusion becomes a worldview.
within hyper-reality life is pleasant, comprehensible, entertaining and the risks are calculable: life is consumable.
more and more people can't and won't submit to this illusion. life is not consumable. reality is on many levels the exact opposite: unpleasant, demanding, aggressive, incalculable, incomprehensible.
PLATOON does not ignore these ingredients of life but rather highlights them.
hyper-reality gets contrasted.
PLATOON poses questions, irritates, inspires thoughts and conveys reality.
PLATOON does not entertain. PLATOON communicates.
