For his first solo exhibition Alternate Realities at Vienna Design Week 2017, the illustrator Francesco Ciccolella present a work about the relativity of reality. The series of illustrations is a reflection about the idea of lying, being bombarded by fake news, modifying facts and living into a post-internet era.
« I’m interested in how our common reality fades when boundaries between truth and lies become blurred and emotion rather than reason dominates public discourse. In the context of filter bubbles, fake news and alternative facts, the exhibition tells stories from post-factual everyday life and explores how we perceive our environment, each other and ultimately ourselves. »
