"Shortcut To Rue De Camp" (露营捷径)
"Shortcut To Rue De Camp" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
What make us, us? Here’s a starter: we use tools to make tools. Constant upgrading. Has this not been the first principle of advancement from hand-axes to blockchain, all the way to your ex’s new “special friend”? New tech doesn’t just change how we interact with the world. It also changes how we understand the world. When the former French Concession was created in 1849, it covered only half the size of British settlement at the time. By 1899, the Concession’s size was doubled and by 1914 the concession was expanded to cover ~15 times the original grant of land. How? Tools making tools. Once set in motion, there are certain processes that simply cannot be stopped. Tools made the ground on which we walk, and we’ve all been told that the path to our dreams is just under our feet. National marketing aside, there is an important conversation to be had here about technology, advancement, and self-building enterprises. I mean, we’re not going to have that conversation but maybe you can.
