Extreme Future
Monday, May 16, 2005

Artistic depictions of future societies tend to be extremely extreme.

Orwellian art depicts a grey, totalitarian, and fear infused future - All together: "WAR IS PEACE," "FREEDOM IS SLAVERY," "IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH," "The Party is never wrong."

When the future has a greenish tint to it, we humans are used as batteries for the survival of, ironically, human-built super computers in some sort of matrix - "Wow, I know kung-fu."

Huxley depicts his future as a daze of somatic dullness - Who's the savage now?

George Lucas, on the other hand, invented a future in 1971 that is mostly white in an endless white holographic 'crazy' room.

Is there a middle ground?
