If you’ve ever made a prediction, especially about your own future, you know how hard it can be. For most people, describing their preferred outcomes in relation to unknown futures is like learning to speak a new language, wrestling with unimagined scenarios. In this artwork, we provide a set of introductory scenarios and questions about the future that reveal to you how easy it is to make the transition from regurgitating dominant future narratives to scenario planning, where a world of potential profit and adventure awaits.
Where do you want to be in the future? If you were given the choice between excitement or comfort which would you choose? Imagined as a hybrid between a travel agency and a career counselling centre, the Climate Bureau provides personalised consultations preparing you for a future with weather that is warmer, wetter and weirder. Entrepreneurial types might be interested in exploiting the new trade routes and business opportunities that are emerging with an opened Arctic Northwest Passage. The socially concerned may want to pick up a new language in order to communicate with the climate refugees that will likely head towards the relatively safe shores of Ireland. Choose one of our package deals today, and begin the journey towards a brighter tomorrow.
CoClimate is an artist-led think tank that aims to explore and understand climate change from many perspectives. CoClimate looks at the history of human attitudes towards weather and climate, and considers future scenarios. From the scientific to the social, what can we expect in the coming decades?
