Alterati – The Other Culture

This is a statement, not an appeal.

Most great art movements, like surrealism, dada, or situationism all started with a manifesto, a statement of position.

Here is our position: We are already here.

The proscenium has been breached, disbanded and dismantled.

Information networks span the globe, and cultures, ideas, and realities are converging and being redefined minute-by-minute.

This revolution will not be broadcast, although it may be televised, on demand, portable and configurable— but it will be your choice. Possibly, it will be your creation.

Remember the Future of “no future”?

Well, this is it.

That’s not a statement of doom.

It’s an expression of freedom.

Kill your clocks, burn your calendars, and hang out.

Alterati has built the platform. All you need do is show up.
