THE DARK LABYRINTH, AKA THE CHAPTER006 OF SOME/THINGS MAGAZINE, EXPLORES THE FUTURE THROUGH THE EYES OF HISTORIC & CONTEMPORARY VISIONARIES, WITH SPECIFIC EMPHASIS ON SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY. WORKING WITH SOME OF THE MOST REMARKABLE AND INNOVATIVE CREATIVES FROM FIELDS SUCH AS INDUSTRIAL DESIGN, ENGINEERING AND ARCHITECTURE, THIS ISSUE BRINGS TOGETHER CONTENT UNPRECEDENTED FOR A PRIMARILY ART PUBLICATION, WITH EXTENSIVE INTERVIEWS AND EXQUISITE VISUAL MATERIAL, PROVIDING A UNIQUE INSIGHT INTO THE WORLD OF ITS CONTRIBUTORS.
HERE A LIST OF THE CONTRIBUTORS WE ENJOYED MOST, AND THEN A VISUAL MOODBOARD OF WHAT YOU’LL FIND THROUGH THE PAGES OF THAT AMAZING PUBLICATION.

CARLO SCARPA – AN ARTISTIC INTERPRETATION OF THE WORK OF CARLO SCARPA, ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ARCHITECTS OF THE 20TH CENTURY, WHOSE DESIGNS DRAW HEAVILY FROM JAPANESE ARCHITECTURE & VENETIAN TRADITION.
