UTOPIA 2.0 - FALL/WINTER 2016

IN SEARCH OF UTOPIA 2.0, WE SET OFF FROM AN ALMOST UNINHABITABLE EARTH ON AN EXPLORATORY VOYAGE THROUGH A WORMHOLE, THROUGH SPACE, THROUGH TIME, ACROSS THE COSMOS, EMERGING AT THE OTHER END, ON THE OUTER EDGE OF THE MILKY WAY.

MOVING FURTHER AND FURTHER AWAY, A DWINDLING PICTURE OF EARTH, THE SHIMMERING RINGS OF SATURN, THE EXPLOSIVE NEBULAE FORMATIONS FILL US WITH WONDER. INFINITE, MIRAGE-LIKE SCENES, WHERE SCIENCE AND ART SEEM TO CONVERGE LEAVE US PONDERING OUR PLACE IN THE UNIVERSE.EMERGING FROM THE WORMHOLE, SURROUNDED BY VIVID ERRATIC WHORLS OF DEEP HUES, A PULSATING HALO OF DUST AND LIGHT, SKYROCKETS PAST US LIKE AN ECHO, ABRUPTLY REVEALING A SURREAL, ALMOST INCOMPREHENSIBLE PLANET.

THE NEW WORLD ROLLS INTO VIEW: A DESOLATE WORLD OF ERODED MOUNTAINS AND CHARCOAL PEAKS, COATED WITH A LAYER OF BLACK POWDER AND ROCKS. OVER TIME, VIOLENT WINDS HAVE TORTURED AND SCULPTED THESE SOUNDLESS ZENITHS INTO SURREALISTIC SHAPES, LIKE ICEBERGS IN AN OCEAN OF SAND. COVERING THE SURFACE OF THIS DESERTED PLANET, THE MACABRE AND DRAMATIC LANDSCAPE SLOWLY CREEPS UP TO THE CITY’S EDGE.

TOWERING MONOLITHS PRESIDE OVER THE ABANDONED METROPOLIS WITH STRONG STREAMLINED FORMS. BOLD LINES AND PURE BLACK SURFACES, CONTRAST WITH SHINING METALLICS OF STEEL AND GOLD. THESE INDUSTRIALIZED ART DECO STRUCTURES COMMAND THE CITY WITH AN AIR OF FUTURISTIC MACHINE AGE ARCHITECTURE.

UTOPIA 2.0 IS A DEPICTION OF EVERY STEP OF OUR TRANSCENDENTAL JOURNEY FROM EARTH THROUGH INTERGALACTIC SKIES, FINALLY STUMBLING ACROSS AN UNFINISHED CITY SWATHED IN UNREALITY, BUILT AS BIG AND TALL AS POSSIBLE FOR NO DEFINED REASON.
