Abstract

To spark a grounded techno-optimism, we believe in the value and necessity of creating a pluralistic store of possible futures. With Atlas Futura, we propose a guild for cosmotechnicists that treat expanding the collective imaginary as a public good. The guild would bring together artists, philosophers, technologists and scientists to collectively speculate what futures could be, and release “world drops” to share the visions as artwork. In this proposal, we provide an execution pipeline and a series of potential “world drops” for Atlas Futura -- a map collection of futures.
