The personnage of an archaeologist is reporting about excavations of various utopian societies in a setup of a documentary interview. The documented utopias are almost about to tip over into imaginations of dystopias – utopia and dystopia, as well as past and future, historiographical aesthetics and elements of science fiction, are on the verge of merging into one another. The work makes use of an irony of Western ethnographic colonial rhetoric in order to explore the question of how collective visions of the future could merge, or how they could continue growing together out of individual absurd dreams.
