Can you feel the hum in the wires ? There is power there to move memories and culture – transform reality into something that only existed in the imagination.  It turns reality into memory & history – capturing moments in time and suspending them in electron amber that glows on a screen and echoes through a speaker. Even the cows on the farm feel it.

Watch a piece of cinematic social engineering disguised as rural teen diary by a dairy farm-boy as he experiences electrifying feelings for the modern farm girl down the road. Observe the battle of the sexes as the chickens take home the blue ribbon .  Watch carefully and you will see the screen captures that were used to create the final two images in this series.

    • This started with the shots of outside electrical for plugging in car in the cold weather – thankfully haven’t had to use in a very long while. Now they await the coming of the electric mower when the grass starts growing. 🙂

  1. I really love these Joseph they do speak electric,great interpretation,especially that YouTube video,this series is great,comics,vintage,the whole thing works
    I have a great appreciation for the antiques, I have been a collector for years

    • Many thanks Sheldon. 🙂

      Implied Spaces are full of quirky corners that connect the past, the present, the future and the maybes of the multiverse. 😀

  2. Those are classics some of those old social engineering films. So cheesy by today’s standards but an an amazing insight into the culture of that time. There’s a ton of fifties and sixties tobacco advertising on you tube which I highly recommend. It was pretty in your face back then, political correctness has forced advertisers to be so much more devious and subliminal now days.

    • The mass media of the past opens the eyes to the present. I used the older pieces to assist my Media Literacy students in recognizing the constructed reality and the conveyed values, beliefs & ideologies. Once they spotted them there it became a little easier to see intended & unintended messages within mass media that they regularly consumed & accepted.

      • An important wake up call. Hopefully it will lead these guys onto a much deeper interrogation of their realities and the way they are affected by media manipulation.
