Six Word Summary: Futurism

future

Words:

radical

destroy the past

speed ahead

Futurists were inspired by the movement of machines and the beauty of speed. Futurism is about dynamism brought on by the inventions of faster transport, but it is also about violence and cleansing the world. The futurists saw war as hygienic and wanted to obliterate the history of the past.

I tried representing that through the words I choose and through the perspective warp of the text, showing it traveling forwards, towards the future.

I was inspired by Zang Tumb Tumb and Depero Futurista.
