DESCRIPTION
Investing in Futures is a project which helps you imagine future worlds (wild, impractical, idyllic, and utopian) and what it would be like to live in them. The project includes a deck of playing cards that can be used in world-building workshops (by yourself or facilitated by us), and artworks that we produce using the cards. Some of the futures inspired by the Investing in Futures deck may be possible, and others may seem insane. (This world in reality is insane and would be hard to invent.)
More&More Unlimited (an Illogistics Company™) has conducted workshops since the 2016 election, at NADA Art Fair, in our Brooklyn studio, and at colleges and conferences (U of Rochester, Haverford, NYU), and ran a successful kickstarter campaign in Feb 2017. We are now focusing our attention on new uses for Investing in Futures, including a Futures cookbook and An Archive of Parallel Futures.
