Paradigm Shift

 

Have you ever wondered what you would be wearing on Mars if you ended up on Elon Musk’s Space X colony? Will the steady pace of globalization make the world better or worse? If you were gifted immortal powers tomorrow – how would you live your life, what would you be doing differently?  These are the kinds of intriguing, thought-provoking, experimental conversation starters we love having…the kinds of dialogues and debates that spark a great number of fantastical ideas for our creative concepts.  

One entrepreneurial friend, during a lively thought-experiment focused conversation, proclaimed that living in the moment is the most romantic thing in the world, because it is such a rare experience for his future oriented mind.  Romance aside, the best innovators are futurists. We happen to be more whimsical dreamers, always attempting find the non-existent reigns of the ever changing digital game, and master it while keeping four steps ahead of the current fashion season.  It is quite a funny parallel to be living in Silicon Valley, where most of our friends are working 24/7 on improving technology and rambling on about the virtues (cough) of virtual reality.

But how realistic are visions of scientific utopia, of a world made better through technological advances and through the percolation of sharing information in a democratic way – permeating through politics and culture?   Yes, we were excited to try Oculus the other day at Facebook HQ, and do think its amazing, but like any other tool, it remains to be seen how VR unfolds and changes our society for good and bad.
The unexpected is hard to predict, even for the most brilliant human minds.

Like any visionary idea, executing our dream of being a digital oasis delivering empowerment through creative content comes with major challenges.  What has helped us immensely?  Asking philosophical questions that aren’t mere predictions, but truly delve into guidance on how we want to live and what kind of world we want to create with others.  The process of asking, thinking and creating open up the imagination to the rich array of possibilities of what to be and what could be.

We take you to a planet far, far away in this fashion editorial as we imagine joining Elon on Mars…because naturally he would want us there!   In the end, it’s all really about us, what we can create and what we do with what we create. Human intelligence stands alone in its creative ability.  Fearing science and technology is not the same as fearing what we are capable of. We create so that we can reinvent our future. What kind of future that will be is up to us.

“There is nothing like a dream to create the future” –  Victor Hugo

“The clothes that I prefer are those that I invent for a life that doesn’t exist yet — the world of tomorrow,” said French designer Pierre Cardin
