What is Retro-futurism?
  • Retro-futurism can be summarized as the future seen from the past, though sometimes it also incorporates the notion of past seen from the future.
  • Sometimes, retro-futurism becomes a sort of “faux nostalgia” — a nostalgia for a future that never happened.
  • It is a way to envision how different world designs could look like.
  • It works as a retrospection for our society but also often leads to new creative ideas.

As an avid fan of retro-futuristic art I think it helps us to discover the limitless possibilities of what our society could be like which we could draw inspiration from. It also furthers the understanding of world we live in and helps us critic and praise it.
