symbol infrastructure: tech clowns

symbol infrastructure: tech clowns

Why are uncertainty-contemplative Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Hellraiser" (1987) and "Pumpkinhead" (1988) so insitutionally appealing?

These movies provide organization symbols that characterize frailty fears and mismanagement anxieties.

Media-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Network" (1976) and "Mystic Pizza" (1988) obviously indicate humanity's fascination with communication infrastructures. Such infrastructures are maintained in the signal-gluttony Information Age by intensive tools such as the prophetic computer coordinating anti-virus software.

The malfunctionality-themed Hollywood (USA) movie "Ghost in the Machine" (1993) explores the civilization concept of symbol chaos, perhaps because today's Internet machine anti-virus software tools represent species management of bureaucratic anxieties.

Such considerations enable the social engagement of fancy "tech clowns."

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
