“Heroes- Surface of revolution” questions the body as a medium of influence that is mediatized through the image of itself. Is it power that creates the image within us? Or is it rather we, masses thirsty for leaders, who create and maintain it? How does someone’s body become a symbol of power? How, by the body’s own fall, is the fall of power announced?
