is a project by Canadian novelist, visual artist and designer Douglas Coupland.
His first novel in 1991 was Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture. He has published thirteen novels, a collection of short stories, seven nonfiction books, and a number of dramatic works and screenplays for film and television. Coupland’s novels and visual work synthesize high and low culture, web technology, religion, and changes in human existence caused by modern technologies.
Among the many characteristics of his practice, Coupland is known for his re-contextualization of contemporary cultural trends and how they are articulated by the latest technology. Our Modern World addresses larger societal obsessions by revealing the artist’s personal ones. These examinations are divided into three new bodies of work: Deep Face, Trash Vortex and The Montecristos.
