UNESCO Cities of Design

Luca Marianaccio is an Italian photographer. His new series ‘404 Not Found’ is a conceptual exploration of a disturbing future of our world. In his series, technology dominates our lives in place of all human connection and community. 

The artist is showing us the anxiety surrounding how technology is changing humanity on a cultural, personal, and societal level. Marianaccio’s photographs tap into the fear of such phenomena with an eerie exactness. 

“His photos sometimes radiate cold and latent violence”, explains a statement on his website. “At times though, disconcerting beauty emerges.”

Marianaccio asks us, his audience, to take some responsibility in the hopes of preventing such a world: “In this sense, our blame on the future could be a hypocritical forgetfulness of the present”.
