Inspired by George Orwell’s 1984, one can imagine the worst possible landscapes. The current economic crisis has caused the collapse of society as we know it today. Power has closed in itself, in a form of a new absolutism or refunded totalitarianism, but apparently in a democratic system. The power, bureaucrats, financers, politicians, who have survived the crisis, will live hidden from the world. Around them, like shadows, The Protester, the indignation of the world.
