A Voyage to Capricia – In sooth the last adventure of Gulliver’s
A Voyage to Capricia, Gulliver’s “last” voyage to an “unknown” island. This is not only an exploration of a geographical space, but also a time travel. Capricia synthesizes the technical benefits of the presentday, as well as the moral vices typical to a corrupt society.
A Voyage to Capricia uses the famous model of Jonathan Swift’s, describing Gulliver’s “last” voyage to an “unknown” island.
This is not only an exploration of a geographical space, but also a time travel.
Placed in an ambiguous horizon, Capricia synthesizes the technical benefits of the present day, as well as the moral vices typical to a corrupt society.
It’s a “brave new world”, immersed in comical and satirical situations.
