Mass Manipulators – The idea is about manipulation within mass media and politics and how we question it.

I wanted to convey the concept of mass media and politics with manipulation. Using the idea of public figures and how they can make us feel negative or positive about the words they say. The images are concepts for a Leporello that conveys the context of how manipulation can challenge us on a day to day basis and questioning how these public figures can lie but maintain support from the public. Using various media to invoke feeling into the imagery, the narrative comes from someone that questions their authority. The images are a mixture of drawings or found imagery, the words clarify the narrative and what the difference is between being the manipulator and the manipulated.
