Filippo Minelli, Contradictions (Ongoing)

The aim of the project is to point out the gap between the reality we live in and the ephemeral world of technologies.
Writing the names of anything connected with 2.0 experiences in the slums of the third world as to show the idealization connected with these experiences, underlining the difference between what we decide to show about us and our reality and how the world actually is, how we actually are and live.
2.0 technologies and the marketing behind them are characterized by a religious veneration, as also said by Leander Kaheny in his “Cult of Mac” book. Users are pushed to live with increasing abstraction from reality, living technologies only as an ideal reality.

Project realized (until now) between Cambodia, Vietnam, Mali, China, Italy.
