We are engulfed on all sides by an environment designed to advertise, contain, and create transactions. Where can we find inspiration? How can real creativity and human connection flourish? Companies have more interest in creating a culture of work than developing a societal culture. Companies are becoming decentralised nation-states, and in the metaverse they create they will completely control every aspect of our lives while undermining the appeal of physical reality.
Brand is the death of art and evolution.
I do not want to live in a carefully curated universe.
