Visions of the Futures

This essay came into being while studying the Anthropocene and the idea that it is characterised by human beings as the dominant force on the planet, shaping the natural environment to the point of irreversible damage and how technology can act as a tool for better world-making through the lens of ‘Metaverse’. This essay is an exploration of the collective visions of our future. Through a series of AI generated art, it explores if humans have become the new monsters, what happens when their dominance is removed? Literature and science fiction has always questioned these notions by imagining alternative worlds in which humans are no longer the dominant species. This essay discusses these different perspectives to imagine a world from the disaster we are making now.
