Project Muutos documents our daily life on planet Earth. It observes this ever changing world via humans, all the way from the age-old analog world to the recent developments of this brand new digital world. It is hard to see these changes as they are hidden in plain sight and scattered all around us. Only way to see them clearly is to observe them from the “future”.
When the internet came commercially available in the “developed countries”, pretty much nobody understood what are the possibilities of this new World Wide Web. The internet has been around for a while and despite that most of us are using it everyday single day, I think we still don’t have a clue how to use it and what are the possibilities or dangers of it. One thing is for sure, it accelerates entropy.
The pace of this change isn’t uniform. It is hard to grasp that we are living in a time where some people still live in the analog world, without internet or even electricity. Meanwhile, some of us are gliding between shiny skyscrapers with a hoverboard-like Onewheels, while listening their favourite playlist via cordless earbuds. Some of the people fight everyday just to survive, while other people spend millions on a piece of art. Despite these massive gaps and differences, we all are on a same path. Global well-being has been dramatically increasing over the past centuries, but it has come with a price. Even the smallest mistakes can have massive and unpredicted global outcomes. Current climate change is one of the undesired outcomes, that has been solely born from the mistakes of humankind.
This multiyear photography project observes this global change and its unpredictable details.
