  3. 3. Metamodernism The present is a symptom of the twin birth of immediacy and obsolescence. Today, we are nostalgists as much as we are futurists. The new technology enables the simultaneous experience and enactment of events from a multiplicity of positions. Far from signalling its demise, these emergent networks facilitate the democratisation of history, illuminating the forking paths along which its grand narratives may navigate the here and now. “his work investigates the operations and oscillations of art, exploring presence and affect across the physical and digital realms” About. Luke Turner “thus, metamodernism shall be defined as the mercurial condition between and beyond irony and sincerity, naivety and knowingness, relativism and truth, optimism and doubt, in pursuit of a plurality of disparate and elusive horizons” -Metamodernist Manifesto

This project in particular connected people offline and online “.- Rönkkö “But it created something that is bigger than all of us, all of the movies and all of the crowd. It’s connection. We were all connected for that moment. More-so for this show, than any other show we’ve done.” -LaBeouf
