A breathtaking computer animation exploring the aesthetics and ideology of the monarchist State. Broad sweeps of baroque and neo-classical imagery are laid bare to reveal the mechanisms of the spectacular society in thrall to these symbols of power. The authors draw a direct parallel between the lavish excess and calculating cruelty of the reign of Louis XIV, and the current regime in the United Kingdom. A subtle, deeply considered and visually impressive work.
