The Network Society

"From the invisible to the visible, depict or suggest the network."

 

MASS GYMNASTICS ARE A FORM OF ART IN WHICH LARGE NUMBERS OF PERFORMERS TAKE PART IN A HIGHLY REGIMENTED PRESENTATION THAT EMPHASIZES GROUP DYNAMICS RATHER THAN INDIVIDUAL POWER. SUBORDINATION OF ONE’S DESIRES TO THE NEED OF A COLLECTIVE. CONTRAST OF EVERY SINGLE INDIVIDUAL IS LOST IN THE MASS, THE NETWORK. MASS GYMNASTICS ARE THE LARGEST CHOREOGRAPHED SPECTACLE IN THE WORLD AND I BELIEVE THAT THE NETWORK IS, TO THE CERTAIN EXTEND, A RESEMBLANCE OF THE IDEA BEHIND MASS GYMNASTICS AND THEREFORE THE IDEOLOGY. MY VIDEO “THE  NETWORK SOCIETY” IS A CRITICAL STATEMENT ON THE EXPANDING AUTHORITY THAT THE NETWORKS HAS IN OUR EVERYDAY LIVES. WE ARE ALL FORCED TO FACE THE SAME QUESTIONS RELATING TO SOLITUDE, OWNERSHIP, IDENTITY, CONTROL AND MANY OTHERS WHILE WE ARE PROUDLY BECOMING ONE OF THE MANY PERFORMERS ON THE STADIUM, HONORING THE NETWORK BUT FUNCTIONING ONLY AS A PART OF LARGER IMAGE.

 

 

“To be fully developed  network man, one must acquire revolutionary ideology, the knowledge of many fields, rich cultural attainments and healthy and strong physique. These are the basic qualities required of man of the network type”.  - On Further Developing Mass Gymnastics
