THE TOMORROWS PROJECT
By Dan Norton and Gair Dunlop
Once upon a time, the future was easy.
A monorail, a sky needle, and a revolving restaurant.
But now the Expos have all been dismantled and this future dream=shopping scheme, enter the archive and play among the fragments of the past.
The archives are full of obsolete futures. We rediscover their energy, their sense of purpose, their power. The artists have created an interactive maze, where technology pleasure and propaganda collide.
Visions personal and impersonal, imposed and imaginary, technological and societal.
The interface is a system of rational and irrational controls, echoing the vague grip we have upon our future.
