Glass Illka lives in an Augean stable brimming with the media excrement of the political animals. However, Glass Illka does not intend to take on the Herculean task of cleaning this space, but instead uses her vocal cords as a mellow filter for the verbal diarrhea of political rhetoric. Only occasionally does a shard of reality slip through the filter, as a slip of the tongue, which, like the divine voice of Socrates, pierces the polite surface of public speech. Each obscene shard is the result of a repressed intimacy that can no longer conform to the social norm.
