When the Future Is the Past is a cut paper collage using images found in vintage magazines and other ephemera that are then dry adhered to paper with a gel medium. This piece deals with the current crossroads that mankind finds itself at with artificial intelligence, the rise of robotic technology and the damage that technological progress is having on mankind’s environment. The original image is roughly 16 inches wide by 12 inches tall (not including matte and frame) and was completed in August 2017.

Prints are available through society6 and saatchi. Inquiries about the purchase of the original piece should be sent directly to mightyjoecastro@gmail.com.
