Global capitalism is nearly there. At the end of the world there will only be liquid advertisement and gaseous desire. Sublimated from our bodies, our untethered senses will endlessly ride escalators through pristine artificial environments, more and less than human, drugged-up and drugged down, catalysed, consuming and consumed by a relentlessly rich economy of sensory information, valued by the pixel. The Virtual Plaza welcomes you, and you will welcome it too.
This subreddit focuses on the futurist visions of eras past. However posts may also contain contemporary art with a retrofuturist theme. Topics are usually in the realm of science fiction, but may include nonfiction aspects of futurism.
