Call the man above, the pixeled guy, a clown and he will spin it into something positive. He is, after all, an actor. He is also Guatemala’s next president… despite never having served as a public official. Ever. Let it sink in…
Yes, Guatemala really knows how to pick them, right? So… as an art statement, I’ll refuse to let his image stick in photographs. Jimmy Morales (a grotesquely unprepared, racist, sexist and unaccountable man) will remain a collection of pixels for me. He will not show up in photos, as if he saw the tape in The Ring.
