PLASTIK 14

 

auld lang style

 

AAnd so it is a new year. Just like the backside of a can, our world is processed with an expiration date. We get told to “use by” and “best before” since the day we first open our eyes to this universe. And every now and then we press the “refresh” button to start brand new.  Our resolutions are only but goals we put on the shelf for some time and yet they seem to linger on our to-do list every year hoping that this would be the time. After three years of living in a parallel world, we decided that this is the time the outside world fitted the universe we inhabited. For three years, we have been the protagonists in our own fairytale, the sailors of our own ship, but we have communicated through channels of visual and visceral emotions. Now is the time we sail our ship and tell our tale to the whole world. In Plastik’s first international issue, we take a look back at the key moments that shaped the year before we move on and explore exciting new things to come. And throughout this journey, we persevere with the same grain in our voice and the same convictions. For the power of words and the power of images have no shelf life. Neither do our dreams.
