Ephémera: Colei che Vive un Solo Giorno
EPHEMERA: the one that lives one day only" currently at VISIONQUEST Contemporary Photography in Genoa, created by the AQUA AURA. The Ephemera is an insect that lives only one day, its life takes place in just 24 hours, going through all stages and completing this journey in a very short amount of time. The name in English Ephemeral, in common language stands for something temporary and evanescent. Aqua Aura shows, with some of the works in the exhibition and the impermanent installationt that accompanies tise exhibition, his personal interpretation of the contemporary world, both from the sociological and more specifically poetic point of views. An exhibition in which the sense of time - and the actual viewing experience - is intertwined and it is based on two extremes; a state of absolute insecurity on one side and the aspiration to a methaphysical eternity on the other.

"What I find funny is the idea that doomsday preppers think they can inoculate themselves from effects of an apocalypse by collecting things we have manufactured in the last 100 years to protect themselves from the future, but in fact what we need more are tools and solutions to overcome the quandary that the demise of our species is at our own hands."
In Shaping Space and Realities from PechaKucha Night Brooklyn Vol. 4, self-proclaimed design evangelist, educator, and promoter of play Lauren Slowik explores the infinite possibilities of shaping space and realities with advancing 3-d printing technology to create new physical connections. Join her as she goes deep into the rabbit hole of how our future can be reimagined with a shift in thinking.
