Futures 2084

Trip to the Space Future

Trip to the Space Future

Author: Constance Gaillard

“My proposal about the future that I imagine is related to space. We will live in a third dimension much more linked to outer space, where the limits of that dimension are given by horizontal and vertical lines. The suits will be people’s clothing, which are closely related to technology since the helmet will be the new human screen. Instead of having cell phones in our hands, we will have screens centimeters away from our eyes (clearly, this will affect their physiology). Our way of communicating with other people will be through them. The spaceships will function as a means of transportation and also as homes. The “loading” symbol next to the representation of the work The Creation of Adam, re-signifies the gradual creation of the human being related to technology”. Constanza Gaillard

 

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.
