Futuristic Objects

Paul Rees – Futuristic Objects

Futuristic Objects is a collection of props representing daily scenes caused by contemporary environmental issues. Existing objects are adapted to projected changes caused by environmental deterioration to make potential future realities more tangible. The resulting changes in behaviour are represented in imagery and video.

The current discourse on climate change and environmental issues seems to be repetitive and stuck in a dilemma between scientific facts that call for change and immutable, established systems. The project provides an alternative communication tool to long scientific papers or legislation, intending to re-establish our emotional connection with these pressing issues.
