THE BLUE INDEX is a reaction, a safe space, a yearning for power.





the blue index – a symbol for [fake]democracy in the Middle East and surrounding Third worlds



– the physical act of plunging your index in blue ink and voting.





That democracy is most often bought, managed, and delusional.



A US performer


[diplomat]


holding a pot of ink in front of his audience

[the ever-so invaded Afghans],






asking whether they would like to know how this



[the ink? Democracy?]

works.






the blue index


hopes to give you a sense of



independence, not

in-dependence.








A repetition of that NO!



a NO to perception management.


a NO to reality distortion.






a NO to the oversimplified JPEG.


a NO to the beautiful pretence.


a non ELEKTROPOLITIK reality.








But we will whisper,                                 and not shout.

[now you see it,                       now you don’t]

We will re-create Corneille’s L’illusion Comique                                                                      with invisible power.

The unexpected is more powerful                     – a fast train over a tranquil view.







 
INVISIBLY READY;


wherever you may wish to go –




                                      

to the blue line,



the green line,




725 5th Ave,



or your local grocery store.
