História do futuro

  • Milton Machado (Brazil) - 29ª Bienal de São Paulo
  • "História do futuro is a work in progress since 1978 that consists of a series of fourteen designs and a descriptive text. It reveals an absolute and hyper-coherent imaginary system that articulated the Imperfect World, Perfect World and Pluperfect World. This mythical civilization inhabited by conceptual characters, such as the Destruction Module, a machine that makes and unmakes cities; and the Nomad, a minuscule sphere that fights against the odds in order to survive in Pluperfect Cities. Begun as a project somewhere between utopia and dystopia, História do futuro was cross-dressed over time into literature, philosophy, geometry and pataphysics, the science of the imaginary solutions." (From: 29ª Bienal)
