Final Year Project(s)

United Council of Modern Frustrations at NTU ADM Portfolio

The United Council of Modern Frustrations has conceptualised 4 separate micro-utopias – each targeted at a particular frustration or dissatisfaction borne out of being in the modern world.

This project explores the manifestations of our utopian desires through our relationship with technology and aims to express the futility and limitations of turning to technology as a quick-fix to our dissatisfactions. In doing so, it aims to suggest an alternate reading of how we view these four themes of dissatisfaction with our lives. Through the construction of the four micro-utopias using the medium of illustration, this project hopes to unearth speculative realities to highlight the struggles of our present reality in these scenarios.
