"Always on the brink of crisis, the end of the world seems to reinvent itself day-by-day. Our dystopian imaginations of the future, often pessimistic reflections of our present taken to an extreme, are just that: imaginary, not yet realized. Critique of the past and present, while necessary and useful, doesn’t have to be a soul crushing venture. Our reality is constantly expanding, beginning, growing and breathing. So why all this obsession with the end? What if we were to understand the present as a rehearsal of a potential future, a fusion of material and immaterial entities? If the future is made now, from where we stand, with what we have, then how can we reimagine what it means to gather, play, dream, feel, and care with one another, technology, and nature?"
