IT’S SO GOOD is about appropriation and manipulation of actions and ideas. It is about sexualization as a currency.
It’s so good is so plastic, it’s so empty.
Like in Andy Warhol’s line: “I'm afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning.”

And, if vision is taken as tactile, and touching as a distant gaze and form as a metaphorical speech, I’m afraid we’ll find ambivalence and it will hopefully allow other perceptions to take place and doubt to emerge as a critical experience.
