Everyday Objects Age 40 Years
What will everyday objects look like in 40 years? This calendar spread will definitely reflect more modern times.
Monday, May 3, 2010 17:29 GMTSAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) In 40 years, things are going to look a lot different, both in a good and bad way.
Galeria de la Raza in San Francisco asked artists to take the things people interact with in their regular life and re-imagine what theyll be like in 40 years for the upcoming exhibition, Mad World: Message To The Future, opening Saturday (May 8).
Everyday objects being aged four decades by artists include the National Anthem, played by homeless, immigrant street performers. The result was a tune that sounds like the Star-Spangled Banner but with the words somewhat jumbled.
Another artist took pages from a current Almanac and updated it to show how it might be in the future.
Associate curator Raquel de Anda says the renderings show that there is still hope for the coming generations, but theres an undercurrent of bleakness that seems to run throughout the pieces.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
