The (Opressive) Fishtank Environment

London has given up a portion of its heritage in exchange for “the contemporary”. Billboards mirror the city’s desired image. They act as a catalyst to shape our opinion through processes of projection and idealization. This short video seeks to unveil such a reality using the advertising billboards as a canvas. In this case, the streets are trying to warn us, instead of indoctrinating us with the consumeristic object culture the city usually feeds us with. The (Oppressive) Fishtank Environment is an experimental piece, done by a composition of music and video art.
