Digital Realists - Modebelofte 2017

Sander Bos

Digital technologies have impacted our world to such an extent that we can hardly remember or even imagine a pre-digital reality, other than the vaguely romantic notion of it being ‘real’ at least. The speed with which digital technologies have developed has been quite bewitching; propelling us into unknown territory, be it in terms of behavioral psychology or mere aesthetics, and leaving others behind in their dysfunctional analogue age.

Modebelofte’s theme for 2017 - ”Digital Realists” - proposes a refreshing stance towards this modern day chasm: a down to earth and hands on embrace of the digital age as the new normal. Instead of allowing our minds to be sucked into the information cloud, why not bring the cloud down to street level and travel through time and space together? Instead of allowing virtual reality to disengage us from the tangible world, why not just hold each other’s hand and share in its joys? And instead of indulging in total control over each and every pixel of a carefully edited wet dream, why not just allow this pixelated perfection to mingle freely with the transient grittiness that comes with the real thing?
