This picture Senator Barack Obama tells a story for America; based on all the work Obama has done as president, but also tells a story how people view him as a president. Being the first African American president he was a symbol for many people and the viewpoint of the camera looking up at him is very representative of that. The Treachery of Sanctuary is an interactive installation that explores the transformation from life to death. This involves the cross media that allows him to tell the story. Beck/Hello Again also tells a story and is interactive; I like the point of view and how it represents culture by making connects on how important concerts and celebrities are.
