This video work is on the one hand a very literal reading of “digital pop” and uses the metaphor of an erect middle finger (digit) bursting (popping) balloons as a comment on Europe and its many power imbalances. On the other hand, the work uses the visual language of pop culture in its production being lit, shot, edited and performed as if a mainstream pop music video contrasting high production value (exclusivity) with an accessible trash aesthetic as a synonym for the populous versus the machine, the masses versus the mechanisms of “Big Europe”. In a post NSA world, this work contains many digital (binary) contradictions, hinting at an “In or Out”, a “Yes or No”, a “Sorrow or Joy” and without offering an answer, seeks to reveal the human at the center of our cross-boundary collision of identities.
