In 2015, the “Future of Today: Imaginary Future” exhibition, organized by Today Art Museum (TAM), gained critical acclaim in Beijing, China. In July 2017, “Future of Today" was developed into its second edition around the theme of“.zip.”

Using the organizing principle of a collective "format," the exhibition presents the work of different media artists side by side, creating a shared time and space in which viewers can reflect on the nature of existence and the future. The nine immersive works of this exhibition, each with a different theme, have been "zipped" together, and then "unzipped" into a richly imaginative field of collective consciousness. In December 2017, TAM is excited to bring the “Future of Today” to New York. The artists are Hao Feng, 花形瘦, Jian Gan, Loga Hong, 毕振宇,James Cao, Raven Kwok, Pink Money AKA Loong You x UFO AKA Juehui Wu, Shi Zheng.

“.zip” represents the compression and decompression of digital files. A powerful metaphor, ".zip" not only represents the coexistence of different formats but also embodies a populist medium that allows for intimate exchanges between people in the modern age. In this unique era, the power of media is rapidly expanding due to the unceasing reproduction and evolution of different formats. The nine artists of ".zip" have used their imaginations to embody these endlessly multiplying formats by creating a dynamic environment that both captures and expands on the essence of the space. Cycling through nine immersive media spaces, the audience is invited to explore the interplay between inundation and introspection.

Amongst the work on display is .bug, created by Pink Money and UFO. Inviting the audience into a digital labyrinth, .bug invokes the experience and memories of an audience who have only experienced a computer's process of intellectualization by means of continuous “errors” and interrogates the aesthetic value of these errors. Embers by Shi Zheng aims to explore the uncanny relationship between digital art and its audience, setting up a virtual scene which mirrors the natural world but remains suspended from reality. 1194D³ by Raven Kwok is a microcosmic state within a gridded world, populated by geometric creatures created with geometrical finiteness. Fall Down by Feng Hao, based on the artist’s own experiences, investigates the paradoxical relationship between the contemporary human and modern belief systems.

Cornerstone by Gan Jian, presents a gigantic man-made city that revolves and expands around a central optical axis, using light and sound to depict the inner workings of religion, technology and the institutions that govern human development and transformation. Brainwave Communication by Hong Qile presents a virtual scene of ideal communications through fractals, colors and sound fields. ORIENS V1.0 by James Cao Yuxi extends the space's essence and expands the audience’s experience of multi-dimensional space. Similarly, Flow Void by Flower and and Emer-gence by In_K create an enigmatic experience through the use of virtual and abstract structural forms.

All of the works continuously break and rebuild our sense of time and space through synesthetic, multi-sensory provocations. The audience will be transported through and immersed in multiple imagined universes; their engagement in this shifting sensory realm completes the cycle of decompressing the “zip archive."
