Das Kapital [a model] is an urban opera that hums the song of western metropoles.
Through the filter of Marx’s Capital, it illustrates the trace and the biorhythm of modern homo-urbanus.
Three figures inhabit a pop, dystopic landscape haunted by an inexplicable feeling of dysthymia. The machines of the metropolis move endlessly and define the pattern that people and things exist within.
Das Kapital [a model], made as a cartoon world, seeking the ways, the “hows”, in liminal times western man can invent meanings and compose his poetics.
