Dino Korca: The Pursuit of Happiness
London Design Biennale / Somerset House / London, United Kingdom.
“A map of the world that does not include utopia is not even worth glancing at,” wrote Oscar Wilde “for it leaves out the country at which Humanity is always landing. And when Humanity lands there, it looks out, and, seeing a better country, sets sail. Progress is the realization of Utopias.”
In this talk, Dino Korca talks to Biennale Director Dr. Christopher Turner about the idea of progress, where the pursuit of the idea is more interesting than the final destination. Utopia has come to mean a place of ideal perfection, for Korca, however, utopia is a journey rather than a destination. He says: “There is no such thing as a perpetually perfect place, because life itself is but motion, always in a state of change”.
