From October 12th to December 9th, 2017, REnato lab and living art space SUNSET jointly produced the “FUTURE PERFECT; Taipei Future Completion” exhibition. The goal of the exhibition was to provoke breakthrough imaginations of the “future” and the “ideal life style” and create dialogues among people on the ways forward .
In conjunction with the exhibition, we also held 6 public events, including 5 salons and 1 dinner. “Rebel with a cause” characters from the fields of product design, service design, food, environment, circular economy, space operation, green design, etc., were invited to break the gap between professions and to start meaningful discussions. Moreover, the fruit and vegetable farmer’s market was irregularly held in the exhibition hall in effort to remove any preconceived social labels often associated with these products.
The audiences sit on a chairs made of (discarded) foam, use a tables made of (discarded) printed circuit boards, drink coffee, enjoy leftover snacks, examine the various items (objects and services) in the exhibition hall, and find their own ideas of constructing an ideal life style.
