“Thus much of this will make black white, foul fair, Wrong right, base noble, old young, coward valiant.” William Shakespeare, Timon of Athens. 200 year Greek State. From the day Flip Wilson used the phrase ‘what you see is what you get’, in Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, in the late 1960s, until its extended use in computers -for their ability to accurately display prints on screen- this phrase seems to follow us in every aspect of our life, especially in the digital age. The power that media owns to persuade and to enforce its point of view on citizens’ consciences, leads to a timeless struggle between false and true, fiction and reality, darkness and light. ‘What you see is what you get’ is a remark on the effort to make, black white, night day.
