What to Expect

This collage was part of a contribution to a book about the future that was published in a previous century. Its message was meant to be optimistic about things to come, but in hindsight could be interpreted as a state of paranoia, preparing ourselves for the worst.

Even now though, I still sign up on the side of optimism.

Wow, that font is very 1999! It makes me nostalgic. This piece looks like it was not computer generated but actually made in the Real World. Was it?

Thomas Haller Buchanan said...

Yes, indeed— magazines, scissors, paste and fun.

Optimism. Much like marrying for a second time, the triumph of hope over experience, eh? (As Mark Twain once said, I believe.)
