  • 8. ConstantThe future doesn’t have to be that way. One of my favourite artists is Constant,originally a painter in the Cobra movement, later a writer/painter with theSituationist and eventually an architect of supposed realities. He is best known forNew Babylon, a fi"teen year long project exploring new ways of being.
  • 9. New BabylonNew Babylon is based on the premises that through automatisation nobody willhave to work, and being freed from work, you are also liberated from living close towork. This leaves humanity free to roam the planet, free to unleash unboundedcreativity and become Homo Ludens - the playing human.
  • 10. New BabylonConstant created a world that leaves anyone free to imagine their own world.
  • 11. ART ARCHITECTUREHe placed himself in a grey borderland between art and architecture; giving youenough to start thinking but never enough to come to a conclusion.
  • 12. New Babylon, perhaps, is not somuch a picture of the future as aleitmotif – Constant

  • 21. 1. make itPersonalAny interesting change comes from real people who personally and passionately feelthat things can and should be different. It is up to us, the people, to imagine our ownfutures.
  • 22. 2. make itThoughtful &VisualTheres no shortage of opinions, nor is there a shortage of pretty pictures. What weneed though are thoughtful ideas presented in a visual manner.
  • 23. 3. make itOpenSince we cannot think any further than our current culture, we should give ourfuture selfs as many options as possible. Building blocks for thought, ready forendless recombinations in ever stranger ways.
