This video captures a living tableau with golden flakes perpetually adrift on the wind. Utilized as a celebratory feature at various grand events – from the exuberant podium festivities following a Formula 1 race to the grand openings of corporate headquarters and jubilant victory celebrations – confetti embodies a fleeting moment of euphoria. Typically, tens of thousands of paper or plastic shards are blasted into the air by a party cannon, creating a transient experience of joy. Yet, this joy is ephemeral; within seconds, the pieces transform into mere litter on the floor. In the video, however, a non-stop flow of confetti is shown, depicting the ephemeral moments of capitalist delight.
