TS+FF Shorts #1 – Dystopia

Nowadays, describing the future can be a hard task. Technological acceleration has forced on us a speed of updating of the imaginary and an aesthetic and also ontological obsolescence which are difficult to keep up with.

There is only one point on which everybody has agreed since the Seventies: the dystopian vision of future society. Oppressive, consumerist and impersonal, a place where relationships between individuals are confused and dematerialised; where feelings are rare products and the Other, albeit synthetic, seems to prove himself more empathic and forward-looking of any other representative of the old human race.
