Memories of the Future The past is an exotic place – that makes it good for considering possible futures. Re-forming the historical in a new way using techniques and technologies of the present, we exploded elements of the 1862 London Exhibition and the 2015 Milan Expo to build a bridge from the past to the future. Everything you see here was a reflection and refraction of past, present and future.
This exhibition, held at Machines Room was curated and designed by Space Program students in collaboration with students from the RCA’s History of Design programme. Looking at the mechanics of international expositions and subverting historic designs, we speculated on the role of human interventions against technology and matter, inviting our audience to become agents likewise.
Space Program Tutors: Kathrin Milic-Grunwald and Dr Helga Schmid
