Future Perfect 2018

Curated by Ingrid Burrington

On Friday, June 8, the second-annual Future Perfect gathering at Data & Society brought together individuals from a variety of world-building disciplines—from art and fiction to architecture and science—to explore the uses, abuses, and paradoxes of speculative futures.

Introduction

“If the verb tense of the future perfect assumes certain inevitabilities and the tensions of the present moment tend to assume certain doom, then Future Perfect the gathering holds space for edge cases, unexpected outcomes, and life finding a way.”
– Ingrid Burrington, Curator
