we_need_to_talk_about_the_future reimagines the future by questioning what it means to be human, or rather posthuman, in this ever changing world.
We are exploring the relativity of time; imagining a world in which the past, present and future coexist and interconnect. Over the course of the project we research five characters from different periods in fiction and history. Each member of the collective will explore a continuation or variation of the journey of their chosen character outside of the original media or time period they come from. We are sharing our process with you. Every day a member of the collective will share bits of their work in progress via a blog entry in the form of text, movement, video, pictures, jokes, ideas, emotions with the identities of our chosen characters becoming shaped and revealed as the work progresses. We will also collaborate in live sessions in the style of an open studio that will be recorded and shared. This work will culminate in a final sharing of our work in progress on the 30th of June.
we_need_to_talk_about_the_future is made possible by the generous support of the Finnish Cultural and Academic Institutes.
