Title:
"2021 AD"

Author:
Miguel Punzalan

Description:
My work is a vision of a far future in which humanity has long emerged from the ills of the present, raging pandemic sweeping the globe. Key elements featured in this assemblage are objects and accoutrements of an imagined future looking into an artifact of the past that is the year 2021, a time during which the virus has (plausibly) long petered out. This composition would include: a face mask, a bottle of hand sanitizer, a smartphone, a bottle of alcohol, medication, and a syringe of the much-coveted Covid-19 vaccine. These "artifacts" were sourced from six strangers from different generations, persuasions, and social standings who all share one common goal: a positive, healthier future full of foresight, preparedness, and wisdom. "2021 AD" is a tribute to an era; a time capsule to this current present time of which we wish nothing more to already become the past. "2020 AD" is an allegory for a hopeful future, one that sees the mistakes of the history as mere artifacts and nothing more but a bittersweet memory that would jumpstart an era of progress for society and the environment towards a New Greening.
