Future Shock— Lodown Magazine
“Not too long ago we were imagining a world with hoverboards, robot butlers, and flying cars. We were looking forward to the idea of having access to information at any given time. To 0s and 1s, to cyborg intergration, to 3D printing of human organs? Even globalization seemed to be a rather promising concept to a certain degree. So when did the future switch from being a promise to a threat?
Our mistrust of the future is making it really hard to let go of the past, and it certainly messes with our perception of the present big time. FUTURE is our amalgamation of different artistic explorations about what lies ahead - moving forward in time and space. We’ll leave it up to you to decide if the pages unveiled imply a rather dystopian look on the future or if it’s time to have some real beneficence towards what lies in front of us.”
