Issue No 6 Coexistence
The sixth issue of nomad focuses on the topic of coexistence. When different beings, concepts or entities live side by side, many an existence may be enabled to survive—or even thrive—by this closeness. When this sensitive network of intertwining lives is applied to a global society engaged in a constant process of reinvention, the question arises of how to develop the coexistence of technology and humanity in the future. Japanese designer Oki Sato concentrates on special moments in everyday life by converting them into readily comprehensible simplicity. Internationally acclaimed design critic Alice Rawsthorn introduces today’s design world to a far-sighted perspective for its future—dating from 1945. New York author Douglas Rushkoff warns of surveillance capitalism and calls for greater humanism in our dealings with social media. Designer Pierre Charpin creates minimalism imbued with poetry and establishes new interrelations between objects.
