In “Attract Money”, Systaime offers explosive mashups of Internet Aesthetics, where information, images and comments provide a frame of today’s Digital Pop culture. The artist remixes web images and uses an audiovisual spectacle to display the patterns that are dominating the Internet, its icons, its manifestations and its digital prosperity. We are the spectators of what he chooses to present us. What happens in the video has not much to do with our own lives, but it is more a kind of close esoteric manifestation of this web culture that is part of today’s pop culture.
