To expand the SUPRAINFINIT horizon I will bring a digital imaginary world in which the main motto is “Today is better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow: the sky is the limit in SUPRAINFINIT!!!”. What sounds like an empty cliché in our pessimistic world becomes an authentic guiding principle in this other universe that looks at the past without idealizations, at the present with optimism and at the future with hope. Taking the sky as a metaphor and visual inspiration, I will create a website in which, during four weeks, I will add texts, images, photographs, gifs and short videos that imaginatively conveys this mode of thinking. In addition to supporting diverse media and rendering the project accessible and transportable, the web-based medium would also enable viewers to contribute to the shaping of this magical (im)possible futuristic space by submitting ideas and thoughts. I see this residency project as an experiment of how things could be if we would creatively apply to our daily lives the principle that “today is better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow” and eliminate barriers and limiting thoughts on how things could be improved or achieved. Scratching the glittery celestial surface of this SUPRAINFINIT sky, perhaps we’ll find some new ways to look positively, yet critically, at our own past, present and future.
