The future has already come.
Following the example of China
, the social rating of a citizen has been introduced everywhere.
The rating is lowered for misconduct and access
to all the benefits of civilization is used
by the government as a way of rewarding
the “right” people.
Of course, art is one of said benefits and can’t
be accessible to just anyone. Only viewers
with a social rating of at least 397 (as indicated
on the label) will be able to see this work.
The text on the screen of the tablet informs
the viewer that they may pass a special test, updating the data for the calculation of their rating and, provided the rating is high enough, gain access to the work.
