Prescient witness to the reality of 2020 and beyond.
In this age of Fake News the essential victim is truth. Retro pince nez ocular correcting spectacles. ’20/20′ offers a riveting optical glimpse of foresight as well as hindsight.
The all-seeing eyes bear witness and focus on the spectacle of actuality. The vision of the beholder corrected to 20/20, decodes the unfolding dishonest panoply of omnipresent misinformation and duplicitousness in the political and social realm. The process and need of optical correction, infers that a truer picture is comprehended and universally available – if the metaphoric premise is ascribed value.
