Mangabeira and Arrais Picture a World Where Technology Trumps Art

Fábio Mangabeira and Fernando Arrais work together in order to picture a world where true art no longer exists. The pair captures this world through photographs. Ballet is an art that is lost in a world where technological advances and digital art is taking over. The quote that begins this series of photos states that this is "only a preview…of what can happen if we continue ignoring the source of true art in the name of…the improper use of technology."

The photos picture a world where ballerinas struggle to compete with the technological times. Even their ballet slippers are no longer pink, as the dirt and dust around them cover everything. The ballerinas are seen trying to preform among the rubble and the dust, but the art is lost and they fade into the background. It is an extremely creative photo shoot idea and completely relevant to the time of change we are in.
