As a global field research tool, this project invited 13 people from across the world to co-create their own “interesting” future world through the artist-developed app RE-SEARCH. This art project enables us to observe and explore the many complex and diverse views of the world as it is today, and the views of its future. The 13 co-creators from around the world, based in Russia, China, Antarctica, Ghana, Mozambique, Finland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Uruguay and the UK – and a special sea-voyaging participant, who represents our seas and oceans. From the more than 180 models of everyday or non-everyday objects provided by the artists, the co-creators have been asked to select and describe the five objects that stand out as being the most important or influential to their thinking about the future. With these selections, Fei Jun constructed “interesting worlds” for each co-creator to express his or her own vision.
