Kettling

A protest prototype, by @RCAIED students William Fairbrother & Jae Kyung Kim.

A protest can be likened to boiling water. Temperature increases and tempers rise as time elapses.

This continues to a fever pitch. 100 degrees Celsius.
In the process of kettling, armoured police contain the volatile substance. Eventually confrontation between the two opposite forces subsides and the protest is over. Water becomes placid once more. However, it has the potential to be boiled again.

This process of anger and restraint through kettling is an eternal cycle. Is this control of one group of humans over another humane, and is it sustainable behaviour for cooperation in society?
