In It / The Future is Bright I use the geodesic dome structure developed by Buckminster Fuller, and connect it to advertising texts for new technology. Fuller’s goal as a futurist was to create mobile spaces that would help people avoid the lifelong loan burden that accompanies the purchase of a house. The global occupation of public space shows that his ideas are very topical at the moment. The shape of a typical dome tent is also based to a great extent on the shape of a geodesic dome.
By connecting the dome structure to advertising texts for new technology, a certain shift occurs. New technology also promises a better future, but knowingly stresses the individuality that the possession of the advertised objects provides.
