A face with people

Controlling message circulation was the most impressive because it reflected past and present of my country.
Like this image above, individual small images are not quite relate to each other, can create a bigger image with a certain message. I am sure that’s why every dictator tries to control media and prevent people from freely accessing other messages. Here is an extreme example: North Korea. TV sets approved by North Korean government have literally fixed only one channel – its state media. A TV tuner is physically hard wired to only one channel so North korean people watch the only one. I assume that why they look so brainwashed. I guess this case could be an extremely centralized image control.

North Korea's Mass Game

North Korea’s Mass Game

South Korean situation is not far from the north. Since the conservative party ruled in the South, they have tried to take control over the mass-media and the education system. Their efforts and trials seem to succeed so far. A former dictator’s daughter who had just wanted to come back her home – the presidential residence, finally became a president of South Korea in February 2013.
