Conjured Futures is a juried projection featuring photographic images that address or question new technologies, policies, and movements that are shaping the future of humanity. In this curation, the focus is on projects that look at solutions or alternate outcomes. So often in western society do we see an emphasis that is put on destruction and problems, without considering what can be done to remediate damage.
In the last 5 – 10 years with the advent of drone photography and popularity of aerial photography, there have been many projects documenting the massive changes to the environment caused by human activity. These projects have helped to generate an understanding of humanity’s present environmental and socio-political crisis, and now it is time to think about the future. How are technologies being used to preserve and restore the environment? What does the future look like? What is being done to take control of our futures?
All photographic projects addressing the themes of Conjured Futures are welcome to apply to the Call for Entry. $20 entry fee, $5 for CENTER Members and New Mexico Residents.
In conjunction with the Interplanetary Festival.
