"An Actual Occurrence" (实际发生)
"An Actual Occurrence" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
The effects of the techno-revolution are only just beginning to be felt. What we saw with programs like Star TrekThe Jetsons, and Futurama was a naïve optimism which we happily consumed and used as examples to forge onward. Some of us have become like Captain James T. Kirk after his transporter accident in 2266. We are split between ourselves, always moving but never settling. Others are like George Jetson, happily living above the muck in bourgeois comfort as the robots take care of what needs taken care of and our families are free to be. Most of us live like Fry, happily passive, taking the absurdity in stride as talking heads and friendly corporate machinations make most of the important decisions. The Frys among us are the heroes. A few of us have become like Elon Musk or Jack Ma or Mark Zuckerberg though, the gods of our time. If Jeff Bezos is a god, what does that make Amazon Alexa? Certainly a functionary, an Abraham where we are Isaac. Here’s the thing about gods though—even when they aren’t kind, they usually know when to give a little here and a little there. Drop by drop.
