mirame-a-los-ojos-web

Hola todos, también me encontré en una revista llamada Bidoun un texto de George Pendle llamado QADDAFI´S SHADES que me hizo eco con una serie que estoy trabajando que se llama “mírame a los ojos veraz lo que soy”.
Les pongo aquí un imagen de mi serie, y un cachito del texto de Pendle junto con la ilustración de la revista.

Nowadays innovations in totalitarian eyewear perch solely on the enigmatic beak of Muammar al-Qaddafi.
Why does Qaddafi change his eyewear? Politicians, especially those with total authority, rarely fiddle with their image, lest it undermine their cult of personality. (In dictatorships, familiarity breeds consent.) So perhaps Qaddafi uses his sunglasses to send out political messages.
It is true that while Bono has his wraparounds, John Lennon had his tea shades and Jacqueline Onassis her Jackie O´s, there are no signature Qaddafi glasses. His tastes are too protean for any one style to stick.  Yet this very shifting of facades has become the defining feature of his own mercurial image—enemy of the West, friend of the West, advocate of the Arab unity, advocate of African unity, aviator, wayfarer. His sunglasses conceal nothing. They reveal him. His capricious nature is reflected in the ever-changing fashions of his face. No point trying to peer behind the glasses: the real Qaddafi can be found in the shades.
saludos y aqui andamos.
