In "Mammon's Mantra", Deca's latest video from a series of collaborations with animator Steven Mertens, he addresses corruption, obfuscation, and deception in the world today, in what might be his most unambiguous video yet.
"It's about manipulation and the cultural symptoms of a deep psychological sickness at a time when the world is equal parts 1984 and Brave New world," explains Deca. "In Brave New World it was all distractions, antidepressants, mindless entertainment, and carnality. In 1984 big brother put a boot on the neck of anyone or anything that posed a real threat to the system and status quo. I think the scales are pretty balanced between those two poles right now."
