What is your opinion on Vaporwar/War Aesthetics.
« on: May 28, 2020, 04:44:43 PM »
Ive discovered an intresting phenomenon of vaporwave where people are overlaying vaporwave and electronic music over war videos. I think its suppose to resemble the nostalgia of war but that's a little messed up though.
What do you think? However i noticed that Vaporwar is also cousin to fashwave which i am against and not what I'm talking about.

Here are some videos that I found and they are pretty

It only works for me if you have the military attacking a mall! Tracer rounds streaking thru the food court, mortar rounds being lobbed in the general direction of Nordstroms...

Vaporwar seems a lot like Fashwave to me. TBH i don't think either have a place in the vaporwave community and it is just people who like fascism adopting the aesthetics of vaporwave to cover up their intentions while ignoring that foundational philosophy that drives vaporwave music and art.

Edit: The videos you posted don't even use vaporwave music lol. The first one uses a Witch House song, the second is outrun, and the last is Triphouse. The only thing they have in common is the usage of vaporwave visual effects. The people who make these don't even know what vaporwave is, just look at it and say "colorful greek bust cool".

Yep...like I observed above, this would only work if you had Delta Force attacking the Mall of America to liberate the enslaved cartoon iconography being held hostage in the Sanrio store, or something equally psychotic. Or perhaps NOT psychotic, when you look at what war really accomplishes for the rich.

I just shared the videos because of the visual aesthetics. However, I'm embarrassed.
