No-place. On future

April 11, 2018

On present

Mapping the human impact on earth:

  • People inhabit
  • Land surface managed by humans
  • Land area used for agriculture
  • World‘s forests
  • Extinction rates
  • Protected areas

*Missing graphic information: deepest and highest buildings; mapping the constructional sites on the planet‘s water, mapping the objects around the planet (satellites etc.)

Regarding to maps rise the questions and create speculation of (im)possible future:

  • How wide?
  • How far?
  • How deep?
  • What is the limit for density?
  • How many layers?

On future – conversations with developers or m2 = $2

  • Water as constructional site?
  • When we will reach the stratosphere?
  • How about the solar system?

Main actor in the story

Human – main input

Variables – size (noifert), habits/activities (eat, sleep, work, excrete), time (hour, day, month, year)

On proposal:

Point clouds and distorted grids for future urban development outside the planet boundary.
