→ In our performance society, we are no longer governed by commandments, prohibitions and rules, but by projects, initiatives and motivation. That sounds positive, but it is not. Our actions are dominated by as much production and consumption as possible, and not by the protection of what is essential to us, such as meaning and relaxation. The neo-liberal market thinking makes us performance individual projects, which are permanently exposed to stimuli, information and impulses. We do this to ourselves, we impose these restrictions on ourselves. We make everything transparent, no more secrets, banish the “Other”. The movie Komodo shows a story that visually fragments the contemporary individualistic path, influenced by our own designed systems, (un)expected future perspectives, influence of the mass and a growth/propaganda-based 24/7 culture. We follow 2 storylines with a different approach within this philosophy.
