Jonatas & Dana Blickensderfer, Founders of JADA present The 2020 Global Quarantine and the Rise of Digi-Romanticism
An illustrated discussion on the manifold reactions to the search for meaning and deeper content in daily life during confinement, which deprived all of the constant multi-sensorial stimulation of life pre-Covid19 Pandemic.
The global quarantine of 2020 highlighted that social interaction is one of the top human priorities. With near-total physical confinement, an exodus to the digital sphere took place for the continuation of social, intellectual, spiritual, and business interactions. This brought about the rapid rise of a central Metamodern element: Digi-Romanticism.
Defined by JADA as a term that depicts a social paradigm-shift among creatives, whose works contain an emotional appeal that clashes and contrasts with the fast-paced technological ethos in which they exist. Their production is often narrative-based, and aims to reclaim grand-narratives and utopian themes — as a reaction to the search for meaning and deeper content in daily life during confinement, which deprived all of the constant multi-sensorial stimulation of life pre-Covid19 Pandemic.
