Through the lens of speculative thinking, artist and designer Milla dL shifts towards an esoteric track, focusing on biophilic and sociological frameworks to create designed realities and lost future artefacts.
When operating through the 'cecilwave', dL releases experiments which connect the lucid dwellings of her dream worlds to her waking reality.
We are living in a world where everything is haunted by its own past and potential future. We are searching for comfort in a reality that constantly outruns our dreams, or is it maybe our dreams that outrun us?
Whichever it is, humanity has a glaring issue: we've lost control of our resources and we have disconnected from the reality of our surroundings in the process.
(Who is « reality » anyway these days? Can't say I've seen her around . . . )
We create technology, then immediately move on to a world where we cannot live without it - leaving scores of unreliable systems in our wake.
In these systems, we are lost.
In order to cope with this hubris, perhaps a more organic outlook is needed. Maybe we can peel back the layers of our civilisation and replace the current notions of our progress with something less aggressive.
Through my art and speculative work, I offer a deliberate glimpse into alternate realities. The time you spend here is non-time.
I'll see you through from one destination to the next . . .
