happiness machines & the engineering of consent

Here are parts 1 and 2 of The Century of the Self, a BBC documentary about elite attempts at mass control through public relations and psychoanalysis. Parts 3 and 4 can be found on google video. The documentary is by Adam Curits.

I think that these techniques of manipulation and mind control are the spells that our artwork is attempting to counteract. Attempting to work for consciousness expansion and self-empowerment rather than control. Against the culture of a limited, dehumanized reality. Against the culture of war.
