2053: An Artefact From The Future

//Design Fiction

This project is orchestrated following an analytical, experimental and design methodology, proposing to use speculation as a tool to study the dynamics and explore the trend scenarios for our future, imagining and realising objects that will allow us to interact between ourselves and with our future habitat.

The project is part of IAAC's "Artifacts From The Future" research line which focuses on a future scenario in 2053, where the global population will have hit 10 billion and the strain on the environment in both natural and artificial frameworks, toxicity levels, health and life expectancy, social interaction, and much more, will all have severe effects on our day to day relations: how we interact with each other and with our habitat.

How to protect individuals from non-consensual identification in 2053?

Faceless encrypts facial features by exciting air particles around the face to create a customisable shield around the head that is only visible to imaging devices.
