It would appear that we as a culture will continue to develop and change at such a rapid rate, that eventually we will no longer have cultural movements. At that point, the only sort of movement we would be able to achieve is that of chaos (absolute individualism) or unity (a common collective).

On the Topic of Passing Post- Internet:

The conversation of post- internet work came up recently. After discussing this idea further with visiting artist Marisa Olson, It seemed like the Post- internet era would live on until the eventual death of the internet. As far away as this is (if even a possible future for which mankind still lives/ is making art work even exists), does this possibility rule out the opportunity for any new art movement to develop on its own- or rather outside the realm of post-internet? 

I would argue that this is not entirely true. Rather, I would say the end of post- internet, will not come with the death of the internet itself, but instead will stem from our eventual stability as a society to not look back and rely on past generations (both ideologically and aesthetically) in order to run our everyday lives. To make work in a society within the internet is to piggyback on that which came before. To establish a new art movement that does not live within post-internet is to look to the future rather than the past or present-or to make work that transcends aging in that it can only live in the coming moment and never arrive.

Or perhaps would the end of post- internet be a future or a reality in which the internet and ourselves become one entity? A collective mind. A society that is connected not through the invisible cables that connect computer to computer, but rather connected as one conscious mind.
