dc.description.abstract Exploring past visions of the future reveals two key insights: First, we are not always great at predicting the future, but we are good (and unavoidably so) at shaping it. How the future unfolds is shaped by our present imaginings. Second, what the future looks like depends on where you’re looking at it from. Mainstream media, particularly Hollywood, often hands us meticulously crafted visions of the future. Rarely does the wider public get a chance to participate in crafting these images. In this talk, I share some of the creative projects—spanning dance, installation art, AI-generated imagery, and wearable technology design—that my colleagues and I have undertaken. These projects point towards anticipatory approaches to the future that ask, what happens when our images of the future emerge from the fringes rather than conventional centers of power, influence, and imagination?
