Mike Mills, American artist, writer and film and music video director.
For A Mind Forever Voyaging Through Strange Seas of Thought Alone: Silicon Valley Project, artist and filmmaker Mike Mills interviewed a series of children, whose parents work in the tech-industry—from high-level product managers to a chef at Google. Mills discussed with them their depictions of the future. He adds: “There is this whole industry of adult futurists making these predictions, but what about the people who will actually be inhabiting the future, which is all these kids.” “To hear it [these visions] from a cheery, happy ten-year-old, is somehow particularly icy, and really spooky."
The work is part of a triptych of work, which was commissioned by SFMOMA for its off-site exhibition, Project Los Altos (2013), inspired by the Northern Californian hub and birthplace of Apple computers.
