FANCY BLUE STROKE
April 4 - April 7, 2019
As we use cyberpunk to describe a realistic future world, we take our most cherished values in this world to the cyberpunk one. What will the future look like? Will advances in technology lead us to greater freedom or deeper restraint? At the moment, when all public spaces are monitored by surveillance cameras, the hidden repression from surveillance that we are feeling from reality is reflected in the hidden desolateness of the cyberpunk future.
It is, a fancy blue stroke, as the way designer Violet Tong puts. In a world depicted by Violet Tong,several characters enjoy their freedom in a cyberpunk New York City in their own fashions.The designer conjures phantoms to project a cyber punk Manhattan as if a unique City-liberty preserved by this phantomic reality connects to the cyberpunk one that she is portraying.
