Backward / Forward

Backward/forward is a project on using the same aesthetic for different purposes; and to distinguish form from content. The project uses the pose, words and aesthetic of a politician who is famous for using gestures of righteousness and legitimacy. It shows the possibility of using formal gestures to make a message seem more legitimate, and vice versa. In the video we have a speech in court, in front of cameras and judges, and later, the speech of an art student for an empty class with empty chairs.
