BACK TO THE FUTURE  -  Wednesday November 24th, 2010
Welcome back to the new and improved Millennium People 2.9 – the international (London-based) design group (dare we say think-tank?). Before we get back to the future, let me just explain what has happened here.
For those of you not too sure where you are, or why you’re reading this, quickly brush up on us at the About page… In addition to the much b’luved blog, Millennium People 2.0 now sports a separate page for Speculative Publications – the graphic and print arm of MP (a separate post on that to come) – and will soon be launching several longer-running projects (and maybe even a few collaborations), as well as providing a platform for the dissemination of online artworks and literature.
Watch this space, the ball is now rolling…
In trying to describe MP’s agenda what becomes evident is the uselessness of a manifesto. The format of the web demands two-second soundbytes, able to be disseminated instantly to chewing-gum attention spans.
Accordingly, this whole project constitutes a manifesto – one that is re-written and re-defined every time I hit the ‘post’ button. The creative act becomes an iterative attempt to approach the idea itself. The idea behind Millennium People is a strong desire to tentatively define the era in which we live.
Millennium People is a propositional group, which believes in exploring the possibilities of the present and immediate future through experiment and meaningful speculation, not vapid or sophistic postulation.
