DUST #17 – Crisis Is Our Territory – A still life issue
The absence of human bodies in this issue, besides being a consequential choice during a period in which the majority of us have needed to rethink the way we work and keep our projects alive is, nonetheless, a way to symbolically and visually reflect upon a necessary inner withdrawal — an introspective moment of stillness and assessment. The past months alone — defined first by mass social isolation, later by global civil protests — presented a catalyst for a significant shift in our collective psyche. The process of transitioning to a different reality has accelerated. Still, whether it be towards a positive direction or a stagnant vicious circle, it will depend on our commitment to evolve. During these times, finding a moment of stillness to recalibrate our actions and expand our capacity to imagine a different future is not only a possibility; it is a requirement.
