Modern Tech Alt/1977: We are not Time Travelers


Alex Varaneses neue Illuserie „Alt/1977: We are not Time Travelers“ war am Wochenende zurecht im kompletten Internet zu sehen: Moderne Technologien in remixtem Retro-Industrial Design mit entsprechenden Plakaten.

What would you do if you could travel back in time? Assassinate Marilyn Monroe? Go on a date with Hitler? Obviously. But here's what I'd do after that: grab all the modern technology I could find, take it to the late 70's, superficially redesign it all to blend in, start a consumer electronics company to unleash it upon the world, then sit back as I rake in billions, trillions, or even millions of dollars.

I've explored that idea in this series by re-imagining four common products from 2010 as if they were designed in 1977: an mp3 player, a laptop, a mobile phone and a handheld video game system.
