Manifesto

This manifesto was produced for my MA in Visual Effects at Ravensbourne. As my manifesto, I wanted to create an object that would represent not just my opinion and my perception of the world, but something that would reflect ironically more about the world itself, making people think. More important than that, it had to be something I could spend some time doing and having fun.

I’ve become specially intrigued by Zygmunt Bauman ideas and his concept of liquid modernity. Whilst I was getting more acquainted with his reflections about our times, I came across an apparent antagonic term, “now-ist”. The term is apparently coming more popular and I’ve found very interesting to observe the idea of liquid modernity and now-ism as two opposing but complementary terms to understand the society we live in.
