Honey Biba-Berkerlee – Excerpt from DIPLOTOPIA

“Diplotopia takes its point of departure in the American magazine Whole Earth Catalog (1968-’71) and their belief in the revolutionary potential of Nasa’s first image of the globe from 1967. The photograph became the outset for the aesthetics of the magazine and in a later issue (Fall ’70), a pastiche of this very picture made the cover.The title ‘Diplotopia’ is a combination of utopia and diplopia, which means double vision, and by unfolding the ideologies and images from the magazine, the video plays out a science-fiction scenario wherein the revolutionary potential of the photograph(or was it actually the pastiche photograph?) came to have an impact on the world which has led to a whole different society from the one we know today.”
