We’ve seen galleries all over the world providing virtual tours over the last few weeks. This is a democratising of the world’s antiquities, which throws up questions around what it means to view masterpieces.
Or why bother going to a famous gallery when you can just recreate paintings at home which you can gift the world through Insta?
With all of us so focused on all the change coming our way this piece poses an interesting counter-argument. Well worth the read.
Predictions of fundamental change after Covid-19 are driven by the biased perspectives of those making them – in reality, most things will go back to how they were.
The scale and breadth of the questions that are being asked on what the future holds, is vast. Never before will collaboration and a sharing of knowledge be so important. This piece by BOND is a really well detailed and considered piece that looks at the future from a myriad of perspectives. All of which lead to some big thought provoking questions.
1) Modernize and improve government / healthcare / education driving lower costs and more efficiency
2) Improve coordination between government and business for the good of citizens
3) Help people find jobs (and training) best suited to their skills and lifestyles
4) Promote more considered consumption
5) Get back to basics including staying closer to home
6) Bolster family connectedness / seriousness of purpose / community / faith?
How we will answer these questions, only time will tell, when we look back from tomorrow’s world.
