About SEVEN SIBLINGS FROM THE FUTURE
“It’s an ordinary summer day sometime in the future. In Southern Australia, there is a plot of land known as Eucalara. Seven siblings have inherited this plot of land from their great-grandmother. They have decided to build a marina, representing their dream of a good place to live and a meaningful life. However, the siblings’ divergent opinions have begun to threaten the development. Visit Eucalara to learn about their everyday challenges and help them build a future together.”
Adapted from its original showing at the Heureka Science Centre in Helsinki, MOD. presents SEVEN SIBLINGS FROM THE FUTURE.
Set in 2050, Eucalara is already feeling the impacts of climate change. Climate refugees started arriving decades ago, invasive species are on the move, and water is an increasingly precious resource. Amongst all this are seven siblings. These siblings each have a different idea for what qualifies a good life and a good future.
Visitors meet each of the siblings in turn and complete tasks related to themes, including the future of work, personalised medicine, and ecosystems. Visitors help to shape the future of Eucalara through the choices they make.
SEVEN SIBLINGS FROM THE FUTURE asks what sort of future we want for South Australia. In the exhibition, we consider the way that our personal values shape our decisions. How do these choices go on to affect our greater community?
SEVEN SIBLINGS FROM THE FUTURE launches at MOD. in late November 2019 and will run through to June 2020.
