Imagine Utopia – A world where money has no power
My project explores the concept of a world where money has no power by questioning the power it has today. How would the world look like if money lost its power? How would we live? The project proposes that this could be the beginning of what is known as Utopia; “An imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect”. The project is based on the concept of Utopia being a mind-set rather than a physical place, questioning why this might be seen as an impossible future to reach.
I have conducted the project by collecting answers and opinions on questions regarding work, time and money from people in Sweden. I have then interpreted the answers by using poetry and painting. Some of the actual answers from the collection are used in the poetry and highlighted in italic.
