Congratulations this week to John for his Shakespeare quote!

(John: Email with contact details for your prize.)


House of Cards, Season 3, Episode 3

“I will be satisfied. Deny me this,
And an eternal curse fall on you! Let me know.”

– Shakespeare, Macbeth

Title: Halo

Description: The US Presidency, depicted here in its symbolism and drama. After a frustrating negotiation with the Russian president, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) takes a stand. In this image, we are invited to see Frank as a kind of savior. Or is it just the American people who are invited to do so, while we viewers see through the smoke and mirrors to his true character?

Next piece up tomorrow! Keep tabs on the project and contest at the project website here, or review the project over at the previous post here.
