On: Art & Advanced Technology by Frank Gillette
The World confronts five separate yet, paradoxically interwoven crises:
1) Ecological Collapse
2) Nuclear War
3) Vast & Chaotic Migrations
4) Viral Pandemics
5) Mass Starvation
Any combination of the above equates with global catastrophic meltdown.
What is the role (if any) of the artist in the shadow of this ominous maw?
Out on a limb, I suggest two….To dive full thrust into the task of re-enchantment of the natural World (a sort of neo-pantheism)…and second, the embodiment of the fluent and vital, expressed in the essential sense of grace as counter-statement to nihilism and cynicism.
Techspressionism is an initial and encouraging start.
