In the still-rippling wake of Covid, with increasing automation and
atomization in the workforce, the rising omnipresence of AI, and the
rapidly evolving collective organism of the internet, one could make a
case that we finally have arrived at The Future.
But without much
fanfare, and certainly without maps or instructions. The experience of
daily life has shifted so far for so many, and in the midst of this new
reality, the relationship between real and representation has never been
more fraught—all the way down to the atomic unit of our communication
era, the image.
The pieces in this issue oscillate between temporally polarized
generations, their movement speaking alternately to the past and future
of moving image media.
