Abstract:

  • To the Vector the Spoils.

    January 26th, 1988: It was a strange experience, watching those sailing ships, simultaneously entering Sydney Harbour and entering my living room — and many thousands of others via the live TV broadcast. It was a re-enactment of the white invasion of the Australian continent, performed 200 years later for the cameras. As with the first arrival of the first fleet, on this second coming the invaders parked their boats and thanked their sponsors. This time they didn’t fly the Union Jack and thank God and the monarchy. This time the sponsor was, of course, Coca-cola.
