Cyberia: The Unknown Territories shaped by the Digital Ethnos
Who is “Generation Z”? Are they post-millennials? The Last Generation? Regardless of their name, this cohort is growing up and quickly reshaping digital culture. Emojis, Snapchat, memes, viral trends and virtual reality are in their DNA. Will they be the creators of
new crypto-currencies, autopilot vehicles, p2p technologies or faces the AI takeover? As this tech-savvy group get older, it seems less and less likely that they’ll be the last generation.
And with them, our world continues to change to become more digital, to become a “Cyberia.” What’s going to rule 2027? Remember 2007? There was no Instagram, Twitter was a year old, your Mom still wasn’t on Facebook and the economic crisis was looming. Now imagine 2027. Will there be no more countries, boundaries, walls, government, finances and old economies?
Just like Gen Z is shaping 2017, an increasing focus on the digital will continue to influence the dec. Are we going to face artificial intelligence in it’s glory or downfall, live without borders, use hashtags instead of IDs, pay with a unified currency, eliminate religious conflicts and poverty with unified technologies and practices. What is Cyberia and who or what will be a part of it?
“A visual response to the brief Cyberia. Inspired by enhanced humans, AI, cybernetics, digital nervous systems, & neuroprosthesis. Merging digital technology with biology. This is Generation Z. Will 2027 bring us the ability to create a digital backup of our brain? Develop Artificial Humans? Will we achieve immortality through AI?”
