Futures 2084

Without Blindfold

Without Blindfold

Author: Delfina Lombardo

“What you can see is a 2084 that holds many changes. Time passed and we evolved. We took off the blindfold. Little by little we are understanding more what happened to our planet. Our actions were helping this change, which it is not beneficial at all. We also understood that many do not want to adapt their lives to this cause, so what was proposed was to create trash cans, which are responsible for recycling. Another change that was made was to clothing and art. More color began to be used and as we see on the woman who is stepping on the trash (the non-recycled one), every garment created after 2080 is completely recycled.” Delfina Lombardo


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.
