I organized a mini-lecture series about utopian ideas in action. Presentations included a conversation about children’s rights, a newscast from a fictitious world with an economy of friendship and love, a video of a man rehearsing lines from a skit over and over, and I gave a presentation on creating an ideal schedule. I have recreated this presentation at other public venues in various formats.
The presentations were followed by twelve hours of dystopian science fiction movies. The movies included: Alphaville, H.G. Well’s The Time Machine, The Lathe of Heaven (1980), Logan’s Run, Gattaca, and Soylent Green. A zine called Between The Cracks was published as a supplemental reader.
