Future Uncertain or 未知 is a collection of artworks by the Trinity Western graduating Art + Design students. The two characters “未知”, directly translate as “the unknown in the future.” In both English and Chinese, these words reflect the challenges that lie ahead.

Paying careful attention to the world around us and the history of the human footprint these works examine identity, memory, environment, and place to explore an unfolding world. Whether it is our relationship with the land, our impact on other species, the choices we make, or the identities we construct, we reflect on the challenge of the future.

As we face this challenge, we offer insights, make choices, and seek new trails. We endeavour to learn from our choices  and cultivate awareness of the consequences. The future is immediate; unfolding in our bodies, in technology, in the air, and in the ground beneath our feet. Therefore, we are both concerned and hopeful.

Opening Reception: March 31, 5-8pm in the SAMC Gallery
