Post-Electoral Tristesse

This is the VIP room. Notice that no one is looking up at the television screens (even though they are gigantic and everywhere). There is a sense of anti-climax, which seems to follow the end of any race. Will anything really change? Was all the build-up worth it? And now, what are we supposed to be feeling? Amid all the talk and hype and cheers and shouts, it is very hard to reflect on what is really happening, what this really means. Hence the mass flocking to the food tables - like people at a funeral or a wedding. Collective anxiety in action...
