With an installation of prints, text and a publication, Possibilities for the New End of the World proposes a near future where humans are released from the burdens of work thanks to full automatisation and universal basic income. The looming end of the world is reversed to a utopia where the days are spent lingering and enjoying the excess of beauty on earth. By using imagery and language familiar to fashion and advertising that employ a constructed promise of being available to everyone, the installation presents a space to contemplate everything at length. The luxury to waste time and the commencing ideas might become more crucial than we ever thought.
