Future love

What is the future of love?

Love

Future love saw body technologist Ghislaine Boddington test the most universal of all emotions – exploring what happens to romance, dating, identity and even skin when we move beyond the physical and merge with the virtual.

Love is universal, ubiquitous, cherished deep inside us, always in our dreams, the imperative emotion that we yearn to experience and express. 

Future love includes multiple gender and sexual diversities – it provides opportunities for us to change our identities, hyper-enhance our sensualities, and relocate the boundaries of our relationships. We will look beyond the physical, merge with the virtual, be intimate with the synthetic, touch and feel at a distance, date anonymously and implant our bodies.
