Secreto de Estado

Hidden information.
An incomplete reality.
We view situations superficially, but very few of us can see the background in its entirety. It is the same in politics. We only see what they want to show us.

I remain lying down upon an old and heavy gurney that must be held by the audience. My own blood, drawn the day before, drips from under the gurney. The bag containing my blood remained hidden from the participant’s view, so they were never sure where the blood came from.
