NOIA / 1
Climate change and its plethora of effects - wildfires, pandemics, supply chain collapse, etc. - has highlighted the vulnerabilities in our complex and globalized world. We need radical actions to disrupt and dismantle through creative solutioning and dynamic approaches.
This issue features thought-provoking interviews with agencies and artists exploring new ways of working, articles from creatives challenging the status quo, and a series of collaborative diptychs that combine unique visuals from cross-disciplinary artists.
Our articles cover a spectrum of topics and disciplines, from the taboo to the banal. We (re)consider the Furry archetype as a means of reconnecting with nature. We look at alternative pedagogical structures to produce customizable learning models for hybrid specializations. We speculate on how digital architecture has been utilized as a means of imprisoning society through an individualized and hyper-curated barrage of content.
