Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs
Info: The future is fascinating because it offers a space of possibility that can be filled with enthusiastic utopias or dystopian horror scenarios. Our attitude toward the future has shifted from euphoria to disillusionment and fear in recent decades. When did this shift begin, and where can we find evidence of it? In their new series FUTURE MEMORIES, Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs attempt to trace these altered formations of the future with the aid of photography. This seems paradoxical at first: despite the possibilities of image manipulation and digitization, photography is tied to recording real, existing light on a light-sensitive medium or sensor at a certain point in time. Logically, then, Onorato & Krebs’s new images would need to contain light from the future and allow the time frozen in the photograph to extend forwards.
