Elaborating on the dangerous 'realities' created by the mass media - Smoke Signals offers a different optional perception. It is a representation of a street protest with all the specificities removed in favor of a newsprint-like filter that obscures detail. An attempt at reclassifying a widely recognized media perpetrated motif or, what could be called an act of anti-propaganda. Turning the camera on itself Díaz Morales re-appropriates its function. Confronting the viewer with its indifferent gaze, it becomes a troublesome symbol of reality multiplied and magnified.
