Mikas’ and Liehr’s works show the estrangement Far Eastern mass production brings to us Westerners.
Of course exotic mass production has been a fascination with Westerners ever since the first big international trade fairs in the 19th century, but Mikas and Liehr add new refinement to it, making it more attractive than it could ever have been in real.
These 19th century trade fairs in mind, one could even think of the end of an era, with air traffic having come to a virtual standstill these days.
