Mapping Reality: a paradigm on utopian/ dystopian futures
Concept of exhibition
In an ever-changing world, what's normal and what's new is hard to pin down. The amazing technological development, the improvement of artificial intelligence, social media platforms, and metaverse, are quickly transforming the way we communicate, connect, and interact with the world. The constant evolution of technology makes the concept of innovation transform our lives daily so that getting used to normality is something difficult - something is the same for less and less time.
New ideas, new media, new methods of communication - nothing is ever the same. Technology promises us to cancel distances, break down doors that have never opened, and be in several places simultaneously. But how much do these innovations really make us free? Are we free because we can do everything with a click and be anywhere at any time? Or are we prisoners of a world that requires us to be constantly available and that forces us into phenomena of fear of missing things and social anxiety?
Impacting our perception of reality, and expanding the best and the worst of human minds, technology seems to project both a utopian and dystopian future. The aim of this exhibition is to probe the duality and pitfalls of technological development both at the level of artistic and conceptual production media in today's society.
