If evolutionary theory is correct and nature really does select the animals that best adapt to their surroundings, humans in year 10,000 are going to have some bulbous optic nerves. Those thin channels now have the weight and size of dental floss, but at the rate were sucking down YouTube videos, theyll soon have the pound test to catch great white sharks.
Dont get left behind, Darwin. Make sure you catch Optic Nerve XI, the Museum of Contemporary Arts annual festival of innovative South Floridian retinal assault. With a maximum running time of five minutes, these 15 flicks dont have time for credit sequences of the protagonist waking up and eating breakfast. Expect high concept and low BS from artists such as the TM Sisters, 131 Projects, Studio El Condor, and Cristina Molina.
