The Pleasure of Meeting Face to Face

The Pleasure of Meeting Face to Face

Author: Josefina Artagaveytia

“I think the most noticeable changes will be seen in society’s relationship with the environment. Cars will stop using fuel or electricity, and they will start charging with sunlight, just like houses. It is going to be a trend to use recycled materials for construction, both for buildings and for decoration or clothing elements.

However, even if the material of the clothing changes, fashion always comes back and that is why in this year (according to the latest fashion returns, which were every 30 years) you can take the idea that it will be in the style of the years 2000. It is not only with nature that we are going to have more awareness, but animals are going to be respected everywhere. They will live around humans, and be able to enter shops, food places, hotels, etc.

I believe that people are going to depend on technology much more than now, and they are going to be able to handle it with their own body, which is going to open up a new world of unknown sensations that are perceived through holograms. In any case, there is something in the essence of the human being that will not cease to be, which is the pleasure of meeting face to face, sharing love and affection.” Josefina Artagaveytia


This work was carried out in 2022 within the framework of the pedagogical proposal of the
C√°tedra Ecenarro Turrillo I.C. Proyectual CBC UBA
TEACHING TEAM: 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.

In an short exercise linked to the proposal of the 2084 Imagined Futures Program, we invited our ICP 1 students to travel forwards in time the year 2084, and propose imaginations/transformations, understanding that design and design disciplines can be tools to improve contemporary and everyday life based on sustainable commitment.
It is an exercise where we proposed to dream and propose utopias.
