Man performance by Sompong Thawee
King Kong stood for untamed savagery and Godzilla for nature's revenge
on nuclear age man, then Pink Man the monster is surely their exact
opposite. There he stands, in his shiny pink suit, the sum total
of contemporary man the monster, as built and bred by extreme capitalism.
His whole being ruled by insatiable greed, unchecked by any belief
system, social, religious or political, he has become one of the
'hungry ghosts' that dutiful Buddhists are supposed to pity and
to save by sending them vibrations of love. Through such acts of
kindness, we hope to save ourselves from Hell. But alas, we are
already there, forever hungry in Hi-tech Hell. How strange that
we yearn so much to kill Godzilla and King Kong, yet we condone
the existence of Pink Man the monstrous Hungry Ghost. He roams our
streets with impunity,and we do nothing.
