Futures 2084

Transforming Realities

Transforming Realities

Author: Juan MarĂ­a Maidana Cornejo

“The experience was very fun and helped me realize more clearly that when human beings create and design something, they are not creating it from nothing but are transforming realities. The common point that I found to unite the images about possible futures was that all the elements of the images are things that already exist in reality, but with different transformations the functions of things change.” Juan MarĂ­a Maidana Cornejo

 

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.

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