On 7 July Nesta's FutureFest kicked off in London's Tobacco Dock for two days of discussions, debates, performances and immersive experiences exploring alternative futures and innovative solutions to the challenges that lay ahead.
Designcollector and FutureFest (Nesta UK) presented “Future Selves”, a special edition of our annual digital art collaboration. Digital Decade was looking for Ello Artists to submit artworks and imagine how we may reinvent and edit our identities in the future. The call was reflecting on one of the main programming areas of this year’s FutureFest, ‘Alternative You’.
