Transmutation Futures

We got an invite to this year’s inspiring 5/day workshop of TrendslabsBCN at Elisava Design School to explore how the concept of transmutation could become a future scenario for humanity and how radical transformations will help us make the leap?

During this session, we shared inspirational examples of new perspectives on what might that future look like. For example, a project called ‘transfigurations’ of Agi Haines (as shown on the image above), who creates designs for potential body enhancements that have been surgically implemented. As she writes herself: “each modification is put in place to imagine how these techniques could ‘solve’ a potential future problem for the baby, ranging from medical to environmental to social mobility issues, but at what physical, mental, social and economic cost?”

Often, what looks weird and unreal today, could just be reality tomorrow. Can we imagine new futures, question the status quo and all have a voice on what matters in the future?

Jorge, thanks again for the invite!
