Archived Futures Harvest

The Archived Futures Harvest is an exhibition in the form of an archive. An archive of artefacts and documents from a range of futures. The speculative artefacts are tangible prototypes and "time-capusles" from futuring experiments conducted by Time's Up, FoAM, Changeist and the Extrapolation Factory, together with dozens of Maltese participants. The visitors are invited to explore the archive, ponder the possible uses and meanings of the objects, collect the 'evidence', speculate what might have been done to get there and how possible, preferable or probable these futures might be. At the opening of the exhibition, FoAM and the participants of Tasting Tomorrow will serve edible prototypes of different food futures in Malta.
