Is Equal selling a brand or an ideal or is it simply playing on the fact that other companies try to sell ideals/lifestyles instead of just products.
During the next few weeks in 6X1, we will talk about found-footage filmmaking. More specifically, we'll look at artistic appropriation vs. culture jamming.

Students at UNC Wilmington "watch" but more appropriately interact with Anthony McCall's 1973 installation film, "Line Describing a Cone," in Dr. Jim Kreul's class. In order to view the film, a dark room is filled with smoke (in this case, from a fog machine), and the film is projected through the fog. By itself, the film would be a white dot slowly tracing a white circle on a black background for 45 minutes. With the fog, however, the film takes on a 3-dimensionality and the white circle becomes a cone.
