sucks all the life out of life, slick control is no fun.

Finally, the collection’s motif is a figure stuck between dimensions. Living in the right now we can’t know
where we’re going. Instead it’s like we know inside out all the people we’ll never meet, the books we’ll never read
and the mixtapes we’ll never listen to. It’s as if we’re caught between dimensions,
our in infinitely informed, totally connected, fully mappable digital selves
and well that fallible person in all your selfies.

The tesseract is a four dimensional square that can be drawn in 2D, but can’t be seen in all four of
it’s dimensions by the naked eye, but scientists have proved to be perceived by humans
in virtual reality environments. A representation of a tesseract then is a representation of our state,
our current mindset, stuck as we are between dimensions. As the world gets faster, we perceive crisis,
but perhaps we’re just in the process of growing pains, as the future we were promised has arrived
and in some ways surpassed anything we could imagine.
