Easy assignment this week: devote 3 minutes and 24 seconds to a lightning tour of future visions expressed in film, remixed by Eclectic Method.
Phil found this video via the LIS (Library and Information Science) Blog, and a link in Dispatches from the Future of Museums yesterday. I'm highlighting it on the blog to encourage you to us it for your self-directed futures studies curriculum.
Homework (which validates watching YouTube videos on work time):
- After letting these images wash over you, jot down your impressions. Which prevail-- dystopic or utopian visions? What are the demographics of these futures? (Hint, I was relieved to see Linda Hamilton for a fraction of a sec.)
- Extra credit: a) name the films the clips come from and b) nominate scenes or films you would have included that aren't in this mix.
As always, sharing your work below (in comments) is encouraged.
Have a good weekend.
