“Dust to Come…” Curated video program by New Media Society
The future is blurry; we made countless Macro & Micro mistakes; we know the storm is inevitable; we watch science fiction, or we don’t… The future was never
bright as they promised it to be, for some parts of the world is still as
nonexistent and discriminatory, as if it wasn’t pictured at all and never
predicted.

The colorful plastic future once was pictured dreamy and chic but no one told
us about the dust to come.
