RetroFuture

From the Egyptians believing in eternal life to flying cars and jetpacks; humans have always been keen on dreaming about the future. While some predictions have become reality, others still remain a fantasy. We don’t own jetpacks yet after all. As we follow the trail of technological teases and wild expectations, we encounter yesteryear's utopian (and dystopian!) visions about today.

Rayfish Footwear is a fictional company that offers personalized sneakers crafted from genetically modified stingray leather.

Next Nature book

We dream about escaping to - and debate saving nature, but rarely do we ask what ‘nature’ actually is. Where technology and nature are traditionally seen as opposed, they now appear to merge or even trade places. With our urge to design our environment, we cause the rising of a next nature that is unpredictable as ever; it seems that nature changes along with us.
