From Paleolithic Age to Socialithic Era: a collection of petroglyphs representing our contemporary age and our future world dominated by social networks. Inspired by Prehistoric Art, Socialithic is a series of artifacts ispired by the earliest human artistic expressions from Prehistoric Age: a sort of sacred and symbolic representations of the impact of social networks on our culture; a mix of logos, icons, symbols, emoticons etc. depicting our faith in the social network religion. But is it real progress? Or is the Socialithic just a representation of a dystopian society, an ongoing process of illiteracy and barbarization?
