VISION / INSPIRATION:
"Industrial Revolution, the explosion of human ingeniousness, which gave men possibilities previously undreamed of, but for which they had been unprepared. The technical progress drove the dreams of people towards utopian super-civilization and super-man, conquering the sky, the sea, the lands; but their subconscious was still that of people following the cycles of nature, haunted with primeval fears of gods and the supernatural, channeled into stories of werewolves and unexplainable mysteries, urban legends, which later became the food for the theories of Sigmund Freud. This was the time of great reverence for human reason, but at the same time of powerlessness against still unexplained forces of nature. The time of still untainted hope for the technological salvation of man, of admiration for daring explorers, inventors and pioneers, marred by the budding hubris and rising awareness of man's predatory instinct. A modern technocrat on the outside, a feral beast on the inside."
