N-GOM is the future.
It is the battered future through the inescapable dystopic lens. Revealed is the degradation, overpopulation, and destruction. The setting for our story is in the afterward. It is in the confusion and the inevitable but fragmentary reconstruction. Our inspiration is nestled between the septic desert earth that refuses to bear crops and the polluted streams that refuse to hold fish but instead carry discarded plastic debris.
In the future, a new generation is born. They are scavengers, they are hunters, and they are alone. They fill-in the blanks with whatever is available. They invent histories and mythologies with broken, second-hand stories. In a time where salvaging and recycling are inherent, they re-build their lives with what is available. A new visual language arises to deal with the new visual landscape. The aesthetics of necessity begin to form providing a strange, horrible, and beautiful emergence of a new kind of culture, art, and fashion. New Ground Old Materials (N-GOM).
