Sort of like bible study, the speakers attempted to prove 2 sides of a issue simultaneously. I was surprised they didn't mention othr works by this artist and works by artists of the same school. One of the weaker programs.

I thoroughly enjoyed this video and the connection with the dominating technology. I agree that modern technology has taken over and I feel that Umbo did an amazing job at capturing this. I feel an extremely Marxist view coming from the segment and would have liked to have more disagreeing.
