Futures 2084

Obsession for Perfection

Obsession for Perfection

Author: Manuel Bruniard

“I propose a dystopian future, marked by great depersonalization, partial loss of color and an obsession with “perfection”. Humans become so dependent on screens that they have to incorporate a projector into themselves, through which they interact with their environment. On one side of the image the human is shown, going from the personal to the “social”, and on the other, the spatial and related to objects.” Manuel Bruniard


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.
