A new era has long begun. It is an era without rules. Instead, there is violent transparency. Watch out for authenticity, relationships, empathy and care. Don’t miss the wood for the trees. The iPhone killed Nokia and the iPad killed the Finnish paper industry. A corporate griffin becomes the myth of an identity. Welcome to the New Normal.
New Normal forms part of LET THERE BE NORM. LET THERE BE _ is a non-profit project dedicated to examining a yearly topic with international artists and thinkers. The theme of 2016 is NORM.
