UNDER TOMORROWS SKY @ MU OPENING AUG 10TH

The first glimpses from Under Tomorrows Sky can be seen at 8pm on August 10th at MU in Eindhoven. On show will be a room sized movie miniature model of our imaginary city and behind the scenes work from the think tank.

Under Tomorrows Sky is a fictional, future city. Speculative architect Liam Young of the London based Tomorrows Thoughts Today has assembled a think tank of scientists, technologists, futurists, illustrators, science fiction authors and special effects artists to collectively develop this imaginary place, the landscapes that surround it and the stories it contains.

In online and live discussions held during the past months the think tank came together to design this future city and discuss the possibilities of emerging biologies and technologies. This time there are no dystopian visions of the future, we’ve seen enough of those. Under Tomorrows Sky imagines a post-capitalist urbanity full of optimism and joy, full of life and aspiration.

It is a city of extraordinary technology but at first glance appears indistinguishable from nature. It is an artificial reef that grows and decays and grows again as the city becomes a cyclic ecosystem. A city as a geological formation of caves and grottos covered by a thick layer of soil and slime, a biological soup of human and non-human inhabitants. The city and us are one, a symbiotic life form. The city grows and we grow with it. Together we form a giant complex organism of which ecology and technology are inseparable parts.

At this moment the phase of creation has begun. An intricately detailed miniature model of this future city will rise under tomorrows sky and come into being at MU in the upcoming weeks. Between August 10 and October 28 all involved with the creation of the model will develop a collection of fictions based in the city. The model will be the backdrop for animated films and a stage set for a collection of stories and illustrations. The audience will also be invited to contribute their own narratives to the city through a series of workshops. Under Tomorrows Sky will be the starting point of a new ecological urban vision. The city of the future is not of a fixed time or place but it will emerge through the help of many.

Opening on Friday August 10 from 8 pm onwards.
On view till October 28.

This is the opening provocation and introduction that the Center for Science and Imagination prepared for us. The Center is an organisation that brings together science fiction writers, scientists, engineers, technologists, and the general public to think big and explore radical ideas through collaborative projects. The Center is directed by Ed Finn and is a collaboration with Arizona State University and best-selling science-fiction author Neal Stephenson. They been working together on a plan to use science-fiction to reignite America’s ability to undertake major infrastructure projects.

UNDER TOMORRWS SKY PUBLIC THINK TANK SHORT SUMMARIES

Sjef van Gaalen has posted a nice series of short summaries of the Under Tomorrows Sky public think tank introductions. Check them out here.

“The physical city as we know it is kind of destroying itself, says Liam. It is now defined by invisible boundries, airspace, traffic flows, data flows. Is the city even a city anymore? The idea of the speculative city has been abandoned for some time, but now amidst our current collapse the future is a possibility again. There’s a new city under tomorrows sky, we’re going to figure out what that might be.”
