Futures 2084

Environmental Unconsciousness

Environmental Unconsciousness

Author: Candela de Fino

“In my proposal I wanted to convey the fact that the only thing that will be thought of in the future will be technological devices, without giving much importance to what is happening in the world, implying with this environmental pollution. That is why I put a person imagining or thinking about those little things, I tried to communicate this thought with a blue smoke simulation. I also included clothing since it seems to me that it is something that is always changing and evolving. We will find different fashions and styles all the time. There won’t be one firm thing and I feel like that’s going to be very prevalent as the years go by, adding tech stuff to it.” Candela de Fino


This imagination is part of the pedagogical proposal of the Ecenarro Turrillo Chair, IntroducciĂłn al Conocimiento Proyectual 1 (ICP 1), Ciclo BĂĄsico ComĂșn (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 OrtĂ­, Andrea LĂłpez y Natalia Ardissone.
