The ThinkerPerfect LeaderLeaving the 20th CenturyWork Station

Perfect Leader resembles a music video in which animations and computer effects are used in a playful manner. With the help of a fictive computer program, a speaker from off camera varies the appearance and character of a prototype to create the ideal leader. As in many of her works, Almy thus comments ironically on the norming and the manipulative potential of the mass media and their influence on everyday life and society.
