This Time Tomorrow is an exhibition that features designs ranging from the infinitesimal scale of DNA to the distant horizon of outer space to form a landscape of clues about the world of tomorrow.
As we venture into the Fourth Industrial Revolution – and against the environmental effects of human activity on a planetary scale – the relationships between all scales of life in the universe are becoming dramatically evident. The exhibition presents six scenarios where the radical ideas of today have become tomorrow’s new normal. All of the projects presented leap into a potential future. They foster debate about their consequences, posing pressing questions about the future we choose to create.
The exhibition was developed by the Victoria and Albert Museum in collaboration with the World Economic Forum. Design by Joseph Popper and Nicholas Mortimer, graphics by Koby Barhad. Prepared in anticipation for a major upcoming exhibition about the future of design at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
