The video sculpture is a dynamic anamorphous monument to Chelsea Manning—the innocent, highly intelligent manchild. It has been conceived while Manning, back then, Bradley, was tortured with solitary confinement, no-touch psychic disturbance and subjected to forced nudity—for debriefing the world on the Vietnam-esque activities of the US in Iraq. While the media have been distorting the political meaning of Bradley Manning’ audacious deed, the technique of anamorphosis has reassembled the image of Manning and her aim of leaking the documents on war crime by letting her speak:
Manning 3D: “… well, it was forwarded … to WikiLeaks and god knows what happens now. Hopefully worldwide discussion, debates, and reforms. If not, than we’re doomed as a species. I will officially give up on the society we have if nothing happens.”
What happened is nothing but a couple of new wars in the society we have. So, we are certainly doomed as a species. But the exceptional idealists we have tune our story to be not tragic only, but also extremely beautiful.
