The Future Is Unwritten

Textile materials, clothes and their codes are time travel analog messages from the past which communicate personal worldview, political and geographical contexts.

“The Future is Unwritten” is a speculative design project which invites Split local makers to consider their inherent skills from the past and project them into a future technological context.

A sailmaker, a seamstress, and a crochet crafter were invited to make a suit resistant to the mediterranean phenomena Jugo and Bura with local materials; like reused sailcloth donated by a local sailmaker for the raincoat . They make an analog textile message travel through time to the future inhabitants of Split.

For this I researched about handmade codes and patterns in other cultures. I asked to Split crafters their message to future inhabitants and I created a code. The message can be encoded by reading through the glossary.
