- Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.
- Brave New World Revisited.
- Best of Brave New World.
90 years after its publication, how does the novel resonate with our society impacted by the digital revolution ?
31 – 21 is a study on Brave New World’s legacy. The project questions the representation of three main characters in the book. Who are they today ? Writer, polemicist, influencer, they revisit our media environment through photomontages, illustrations, caricatures… giving Huxley’s words a second dimension.
The reader participates by intervening in the final form of the publication. The pages are detachable and can be rearranged to further explore the parallels between fiction and reality. The characters’ identities are deconstructed and recomposed, thus continuing to explore dystopia by reflecting on our present.
