In this paper, the basis of social activism and the society of spectacle have been analyzed within the public art project "Pillow Fight at Union Square." The paper examines how a critical outlook on production, direct human interaction and communication and social activism were the main themes of the event. In many ways, modern communication technology and the modern media often distort the way that human interact, as well as how they perceive one another.

From the Paper:

"The aim of this exhibition evaluation is to understand the basis of art within Debord's Situationist theory of the "Society of the Spectacle." Through a modern critical point of view of the Situationist Movement, the social activist art at New Mind Space entitled "Pillow Fight at Union Square" offers a contrary point of art interaction. By analyzing the various aspects of art as the secondary imaging or spectacle in abstract human relationships, the "Pillow Fight at Union Square" is a unique and important socially activist style of art in the 21st century."
