  • JULY 20th 1969

    The Space race begins and the dispute between Communism and Capitalism comes to a rise resulting in the technological conflict of the decade. The United States experience its longest uninterrupted period of economic expansion in history and, though war is upon the nation, an impossible mission to reach a deserted rock becomes the country’s prime focus.

    The attempt to prove the nation’s authority, ultimately came to testify a shift in perspective on how media filtered reality, the genesis of a generation hooked on contemplation - the perfect specimen of televised picture’s profound repercussions. 
  • "Simply throughout their performances, certain media events
    can have a profound effect on the world"
