Futures 2084

Planetary Exile

Planetary Exile

Author: Tania Chamulak Scherling

“The future for me is not very optimistic since I feel that the ways in which we treat our planet will have consequences. I wanted to show that by 2084 we will be on another planet since the Earth has become inhospitable for humans. On the new planet things won’t go much differently. There will be lack of oxygen due to the pollution we will carry; there will be floods, landslides, fires and storms. The chaos we humans conceive will haunt us. I represented it with the crack in the middle of the collage.” Tania Chamulak Scherling


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.
