'Humanity's hunt for the amazing, the epic and the unimagined'.
The desire for wonder is a condition that the human race has repeatedly expressed and explored. Whether through religion, art, science fiction, or technological marvels, we yearn for fantastical worlds, other realities, exotic cultures and a more spectacular every day.
We live in an age where we increasingly seek the new, the amazing, the unknown, or the unimagined; whether expressed through our consumption of ever changing consumer products and new fashions and tastes, or through our need for the novel and ever more exciting experiences of exotic travel, extreme sports, and spectacular events.
In opposition to this, there is burgeoning movement towards slowing down and resurrecting a nostalgic version of the past. Retro" and "Vintage" clothing, music and lifestyles all speak of a search for wonder through "real" and "authentic" experience in a perfect imagined past that never really existed.
