Burning the Internet

Social networks, instant messengers, the Internet and mobile devices are regularly banned in certain countries and religious societies. Authorities and individual communities are wary of an information wave that can change the consciousness of society and the idea of the current order. Prohibitions and punishment for disobedience create fear. In this video work, the ban on Internet technologies is similar to the burning of heretics on the Hotel de Ville in Paris in the Middle Ages. The public execution of a man with a telephone is a symbol of censorship in society.
