Story

Mr. Boomer, a symbolic figure representing today's society's reliance on media for truth. Mr. Boomer embodies the detachment from reality and the blindness to the wonders of the world. Through this character, Verest aims to spark critical thinking and raise awareness among his audience.

TRANSBOOMER

Changeability and Adaptation

A transformer represents constant change and adaptation. This reflects how Mr. Boomer must adapt to the continual shifts in external influences and technology. Just as a transformer can change shape to fit its environment, Mr. Boomer must adapt to the ever-changing narratives and truths imposed from outside.

Dual Identity

Transformers have a dual identity; they can be both an ordinary machine and a powerful robot. This symbolizes the dual nature of external influences: on one hand, they present themselves as reliable sources of information, but on the other, they can manipulate and distort reality. Mr. Boomer, as a transformer, embodies this duality and the need for the audience to critically consider which form of 'truth' they consume.

Detachment from Reality

The mechanical and sometimes inhuman aspects of a transformer emphasize Mr. Boomer’s detachment from reality. It underscores how he, and thereby external influences, often stand apart from actual human experiences and emotions. This mechanical nature evokes a sense of alienation.
