Futures 2084

The Challenge of Infinite Possibilities

The Challenge of Infinite Possibilities

Author: Ana Paula Saravia

“To think about the future is to imagine infinite possibilities where the human being generates the constant development of a potential and habitable world. However, we cannot abstract ourselves from the current context where the individual is responsible for the actions carried out to achieve that progress. This is why when imagining the future it is inevitable not to ask the following question: what are the risks of applying constant and excessive development around us?” Ana Paula Saravia

 

This imagination is part of the pedagogical proposal of the Ecenarro Turrillo Chair, IntroducciĂłn al Conocimiento Proyectual 2 (ICP 2) [Introduction to Project Knowledge 2], Ciclo BĂĄsico ComĂșn (CBC), Universidad de Buenos Aires UBA. It corresponds to a sketch exercise done in 2023, linked to the Program 2084: Imagined Futures from the South.

Students were invited to dream and develop utopias with the motto 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 made up of Graciela Ecenarro, Andrea Santangelo, Silvina de Gennaro, Juan I. Cabello, Florencia de la Quintana, Natalia Naredo, Luciana Quartaruolo, Santiago OrtĂ­, Andrea LĂłpez, Natalia Ardissone and Mateo Olabarrieta.

Note: given that some of the imaginations have been delivered without a title, from the editing area of 2084 Futures Imagined from the South, we decided to give them a possible title with the intention of equaling them to other imaginations that do have them, simultaneously helping to distinguish them.
