Generation Conveyor is a representation of how our world accelerates around us during our lifetime. It is Based on a modern theory called social acceleration proposed by Professor Hartmut Rosa that speculates why the world feels like it is accelerating in speed. Social acceleration is, according to Rosa, driven by technology, social change and the pace of life. We are all born into a different generation, there are currently 5 generations: Traditionalists (1900 - 1945), Baby Boomers (1946 - 1964), Generation X (1965 - 1981), Millenials (1982 - 2004) and Generation Z (2004 - Present). Each generation experiences a different speed in relation to their age.
My research has looked into why different generations experience varying world speed. Generation Conveyor uses physical acceleration to represent the world speeding up. Each conveyor represents each part of a single persons life and at what speed the world moves around this person. Generation Conveyor can represent any one of the five generations alive today and how the world has accelerated around them.
