IN THE FUTURE / Almond CHU
What will we build in the future?
The world before the crisis has been changed.
The Red & Grey Sculpture is a milestone in the story of our civilizations,
as well as the colorful insertion in the black & white pictures.
Humans believe they can rule the world, but within the passing years, the world fell into a state of chaos, confusion, and panic. Politics and disease have modified us. It has been a huge blow: we have lost our normal life, the economy has collapsed, and the global order has lost its balance as countries blame each other…All kinds of behaviors have exposed humanity’s prejudice, selfishness, and ignorance…
We also have discovered new things about ourselves. Did it modify what we care for and what we want? When we get back on our feet, our thoughts about the future are probably much changed.
We experimented the end of many certainties: it is the door towards a new future.
