Futures 2084

The B Side of Technology

The B Side of Technology

Author: Irupe Boarini, Martina Bouyssounade

“The proposal consists of projecting how technology will advance above all. On people and their accessories; on people’s transportation and ways of life. And above all, on the environment due to the exploitation of resources due to technology and by the same people that will give rise to massive contamination. In 2084 everything will be based on technology and digital. Human relations will be so scarce that people will not communicate in any other way than through electronic devices (eg. , cell phones). Communication will be lost 100 percent. And unfortunately we will be in poor environmental conditions for this.” Irupe Boarini, Martina Bouyssounade


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.
