Featuring Artists and Writers of Extreme Vision.

 The Archives: Kara Hammond, Biograph.
The Featured Artist.
The Archives.

The notion of progress is based on the belief that what humans create and discover in the past becomes the basis for what is to come. Yet throughout history, so much is lost and forgotten -- languages, cultures, technologies, ways of doing things -- so that even the academic field of history, where facts are understood to be truth, becomes a creative occupation.

The pictures which I choose to represent are an attempt to bridge the gap between what is remembered and what is forgotten. It is about the history of the future.
