Electronic House 2013
There are few objects that still symbolize success in this world. I say “few” because most of us understand the imagery that comes with the territory – and many simply have the look rather than the substance. You’ve seen those people on the streets, the ones with a nice BMW or Mercedes Benz, but how do we know how they got there? The might own an eighty thousand dollar car, but live in an apartment that they pay rent on. Perhaps the car isn’t even there and they are only paying the lease on it, while giving everyone the impression that they have “made it”. This type of behavior is not limited to cars and houses, you see DJs modeling their success after the same type of imagery.
They might have decks that are filled with Pioneer logos and expensive gear that many can never afford, but they don’t know the slightest about using the gear that they’ve got. The same type of puffery and pea-cocking can take place in almost any type of setting. However, if you have a home theatre system installed in your house that is over twenty five thousand dollars, it is look at it and thing that that person is simply posing. They indeed have substance to match their image.
