When Platitude Becomes a Form
When Platitudes Become Form claims to ‘manipulate the processes through which art is distributed in order to set in motion the mechanisms of social change’ and under such explanation would tend to be perceived by the viewer as honest discourse considering the supposed transparency of it’s exposé and the implied integrity in its claim for social change. This apparent honesty begins to fall apart, however, through incoherencies between Christopher’s personal action towards individuals and his fabricated public-facing persona.
