To reflect on the trajectory of our species, our cultural, scientific, and technological environment, and its development throughout history, Ekumen Souvenirs comes to life. The proposal begins with a futuristic situation or scenario in which certain objects are discovered outside their context and time. In a manner reminiscent of a science fiction novel, we engage in speculation about their origin.

Inspired by the work of the writer Úrsula K. Leguin, specifically, the novels that allude to the Ekumen.
