Futures 2084

Blade Runner 2084

Blade Runner 2084

Author: Nicolás Agustín Corti

gar”My proposal is influenced by the idea of a dystopian future like the one proposed in the movie “Blade runner”. Due to global warming, it will almost always be raining, therefore people must wear waterproof clothing almost all the time to avoid getting wet. The world will find itself overpopulated, mostly by massive cities that gradually destroy what remains of nature. People will also begin to embed cybernetic prostheses to improve their bodies. Nature will slowly die and the planet will end up completely contaminated. The animals will start to become extinct and will have much more value due to their scarcity.” Nicol√°s Agust√≠n Corti

 

This imagination is part of the pedagogical proposal of the Ecenarro Turrillo Chair, Introducci√≥n al Conocimiento Proyectual 1 (ICP 1), Ciclo B√°sico Com√ļn (CBC), Universidad de Buenos Aires UBA. It corresponds to the initial sketch exercise of the first semester of 2022, linked to the Program 2084 Imagined Futures from the South.

Students were invited to dream and develop utopias with the precept of traveling to the future, the year 2084, and propose imaginations/transformations, understanding that design and its project disciplines are tools to improve contemporary and everyday living, with a sustainable commitment.

The teaching team was composed by Graciela Ecenarro, Andrea Santangelo, Silvina de Gennaro, Juan I. Cabello, Florencia de la Quintana, Natalia Naredo, Luciana Quartaruolo, Santiago Ortí, Andrea López y Natalia Ardissone.

 

Note: the title of this imagination has been granted by the editing area of 2084 Imagined Futures from the South. Since some of the imaginations have been presented without titles, we decided to give them one with the intention of helping to distinguish them.
