Abstract: How do our sensory abilities adapt as we shift our priority towards productivity as opposed to survival in the modern world? What new senses do we need in a productivity-obsessed society? Sensorial Futures approaches this scenario through a speculative sensory augmentation pop-up store, featuring devices that demonstrates the concept of Sensory Substitution . The project explores two modern-day obsessions: money, and productivity in the form of time and multi-tasking. Sensorial Futures attempts to mirror and criticise our obsession with productivity and technosolutionism with a kitschy retro-futuristic exhibit to signify the unreality and absurdity of this speculation. The project brings attention to the idea of using our body as interfaces for information, the kinds of stimuli we can create for the body, and what kind of senses we may need in the future.
