Boronski’s art video, “Dessert in Plato’s Caves”

In Boronski’s captivating art video, “Dessert in Plato’s Caves,” ¬†we are taken on a thought-provoking journey that explores the complex interplay between our perceived realities and the influence of media and advertising. Through a mesmerising 3.45-minute reflection, we are invited to ponder the authenticity of our experiences and the impact of the narratives imposed upon us by the media. In Boronski’s video called “Plato’s Dessert,” he uses stop-motion and paper-cutting techniques to show how modern society is like the cave dwellers in Plato’s story. Instead of seeing shadows, we are drawn to the bright TV screens that promise us happiness and peace. But when we chase these promises, we are disappointed and feel trapped like before. Boronski is trying to show how we are influenced by media and advertising and how it can change the way we think and act. Does what we see and believe in get shaped by what we’re exposed to repeatedly? The “Plato’s Dessert” video makes us think about our own reality and how much of it is our own. It asks us to think about what we believe in and whether they’re true or just illusions. Instead of telling us what to think, the video encourages us to think for ourselves and question everything we see. It makes us wonder who’s controlling the way we see the world.
