Future Dystopia / Utopia Project

This project can be done as a team or as an individual.

Imagine our civilization at least 20 years from now. Things have either collapsed beyond repair or life has become a harmonious dream. Through some crazy combination of wormholes and string theory, you have the opportunity to create a piece of information that will be sent back to the current population.

  • What does your imagined future look, sound, and feel like? (your framing story)
  • What message would you transmit to the current population from the future?
  • You will brainstorm, research, sketch, map, design, and build physical prototypes of an object(s) from your imagined future.
  • You will deliver your message in any final medium(s) you choose. The only requirement is that it includes image(s), physical or virtual model(s), or video(s) of your prototyped physical object(s).

I suggest brainstorming one or more of the following themes to get you started, but you will need to eventually drill down from these very broad themes to specificity:

  • Animals
  • Commerce
  • Education
  • Engineering
  • Ethics
  • Information
  • Materiality
  • Media: Moving Image, Photography, Painting, Print, Sound, etc.
  • Memory
  • Nature
  • Networks
  • Ruins
  • Science
  • Sexuality
  • Systems
  • The Object
  • Technology
  • Time
