CAPSULE COLLECTION : ONCE UPON A FUTURE
胶囊系列 ： 很久以后的未来
六月，GENTLE MONSTER推出一个全新的实验项目“Once Upon a Future”，包括一则时尚微电影和2018胶囊系列产品。该项目邀请人们前往一个未来国度，以探索人类和不明生物混居的生活日常。这部微电影由4个段落构成，捕捉了互为邻里的陌生人日常生活中的互动细节。
FIG.1 IN VITRO
An era of genetic engineering and synthetic biology is upon us. Human beings begin to play God as
test the limitations of their technological advancements. In this abandoned building, a scientist
create his own species. What will become of this newborn creature?
FIG.2 ALTER EGO
The normalization of human replication has led to an abundance of androids and other unknown
It is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish between the original and its reproductions. One
knows when they’ll be overturned by their own clone.
In the future, time does not flow chronologically. It moves in a non-sensical manner and the
the “past, present, and future,” no longer exist. Old and new, past and future, life and death are
meaning. Finally, the tangling of time sets the old man free.
What lies on the other side of an open door will always be met with uncertainty. With so many
changing factors, it becomes difficult to recognize whether the strangers you meet are of your
not. In a dimly lit elevator, two unidentifiable beings make a curious encounter.
