​​Now-Stalgia: We’re not looking into the past – we’re updating it

But what comes after nostalgia? The acceleration of culture brought about by social media algorithms has officially killed the 20-year cycle. Today's zeitgeist feels like an overwhelming mix of every era happening everywhere all at once. Enter: Now-Stalgia. The new trend embraces the chaos of internet culture, taking inspiration from every decade and giving it a futuristic twist that feels uniquely contemporary. Instead of limiting ourselves to historical accuracy, we look to the past for tools to build new presents.
