It has become almost cliche to suggest that we live in a fast-changing world, yet we continue to cling to ideas of permanence. Neo Nomadism challenges these suppositions, hinting at a future culture that is likely to be far less attached to the material and where networking–digital and social–become increasingly critical to how daily life functions. With these experiments in neo-nomadism we explore the frontier of this future lifestyle and culture without high risk. We glimpse a civilization de-centralized and de-massified –economically, industrially, and in terms of power-structures. Neo-Nomadism is not so much about mobility, about traveling, as it is about adaptive response to an increasingly dynamic situation of life. The Neo-Nomad is the supreme surfer of change in a dynamic world.
