Art, like science, never stands still. The year 2043 sees the emergence of the hyperfuturist art movement. The heirs of the neofuturists, they relish the victorious march of technological progress, viewing universal digitalization, virtualization and cybernetization as a blessing, all the while urging contemporaries not to forget about sensuality and humanity.
To keep aesthetics center-stage, the hyperfuturists turn to the masterpieces of fine art, and transport them to modernity. For instance, Sleeping Venus by Giorgione and Titian has not only been fitted with cyberimplants, but sent to a space station orbiting the planet named after the goddess.
Despite being accused of imitating postmodernism, the hyperfuturists gravitate towards the “meta-modern” — behind the intentionally ironic mishmash of ideas, there lies genuine curiosity underpinned by the searching question: "What can and should the person of tomorrow feel?"
