Project concept:
In year 3016, humans have been able to minimize the impact of their visual appearance, replacing it with ideas.
In 3016, humans have been able to sync their looks with their perception of the new world they live in.
In 3016, the world is calm and with a minimal focus on looks, grappling with filling shapes with meanings. The future human is aware of the legacy left by the civilizations before it, only holding on to what’s truly valuable, rejecting the ambiguous primal notions.
Humans of 3016 - the new wave warriors - take care of the environment. Preservation of equality and peace is their main challenge.
Women of 3016 have retained the main trait that once defined their gender, however, they use their caring nature as a weapon in protecting the environment - a basic requirement for a highly developed world.
