Walking through uncertainty

We are living in a time that seems to be permeated with uncertainty, more than usual. Even the imposing towers of steel, glass, and concrete of the CityLife district of Milan seem to dissolve in the opaque and water-filled air of an autumn day.

The following photos document the mood of a walk, in early November 2020.

Web Brutalism is a style far from a naïve visual representation in vogue at the shadow of the Golden Gate then democratized by the digital prêt-à-porter of the WordPress themes.

It is free from visual cliché, from harmonious colors and proportions, from royalty-free images, parallax effects, and blurry videos that paint unlikely scenarios.

Brutal is a rebel taste that brings back at the dawn of web design, a style free from the modernist sophisticated essentialism — as opposed to its architectonic counterpart — and from web design banality which leaves room to the avant-garde kitsch.
