POST NEO META MYTHOLOGY
is a virtual video archive of contemporary fairy tales and folklore of the past.
Fairy tales transmit the experience of our ancestors, and this experience is full of hope: it tells us that life always wins and continues, no matter what. I find this message inspiring, helpful, and necessary during the times we are in now.
This project started with my realization that you can draw a parallel between fairy tales and the Internet: both are producing and representing narratives that constitute our world view, and can function as a mythological mirror of contemporary society.
SHARE YOUR FAIRY TALE WITH ME
I want to use the time that everyone spends inside, mostly in front of the screens to reach out and collect what becomes the contemporary fairy tale and mythology, with the aim of creating an archive where people are telling stories which inspire, calm, support and motivate.
Dream and mythology are an analogy, in this case, referring to Campbell's “Dream is the personalized myth, the myth the depersonalized dream”.
