SPAC3: How Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Third Paradise is inspiring app users to join the social planetary initiative
A new way of living
You might know the infinity symbol as a starter pack for any self-proclaimed hipster, often found inked on their inner wrist. But no, it's 2019 — this stigma will cease — for a better cause.
With the almighty vision of artist Michelangelo Pisteletto, a third paradise is well underway. Like most things, the narrative isn't going to realise figuratively, but literally. It symbolises a third phase of humanity — as a balanced connection between artifice and nature. So what's the first and second? Well the first was when humans were introduced to nature; second being a place developed by human intelligence through science and technology. In a nutshell, the latter describes the world we're living in today.
The third paradise is lauded to be a new passage of planetary civilisation; where those who are a part of it would re-form any principles and ethical behaviours that are influential to our current planet. The bottom line is to be conscious of the decisions that we make daily.
How to spread the word on it? With the SPAC3 app, hop on the bandwagon by intertwining your own photos with European Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli's own pictures of the Earth. The underlying backdrop would be the infinity sign, set to represent the Third Paradise. Once you're happy with it, post your masterpiece to the entire social media congregation. So let your creative juices flow; and while you're working on it, perhaps put together your own list of ideas essential to ensure the survival of the human race.
