An ongoing project blending texts, imagery and audiovisual material, How Things Dream is based on an imaginative, post-democratic future, dominated by a fictional multinational tech empire called AURA. Integrated into every facet of daily life, AURA turns every iota of human sentience and behaviour into surveillable and commodifiable data.

DISCIPULA regards images as political and economic tools – means of power and control whose ambiguous nature can be controlled to determine shifts in the perception of reality. With regard to this, particular att ention is paid to the role of the viewer as well as to the act of looking as a form of political conscience.

DISCIPULA is a collective operating in the field of contemporary visual research founded by Marco Paltrinieri, Mirko Smerdel and Tommaso Tanini.
