Despite the dystopian trend sci-fi typically resides in, solarpunk offers an optimistic, nature - symbiotic outlook on the future. In the far future nature, both terrestrial and extraterrestrial environments will change drastically. The atmosphere will change composition, causing light rays to diffract smoothly across the sky, shadows will become diffused and the sky may change colors. In the future, music and literature of today, such as Electric Light Orchestra’s “Mr. Blue Sky” - which is currently so closely tied to relentless optimism - may not represent a good day at all. The conditions of this new world will change what our current definition of a good day.
This garment, set within this future world, contemplates what a good day will look like. The colors and pattern represent the intersection between sky, ocean and land along a shoreline. The construction of the garment allows the user to manipulate its movement, much the same way nature will influence the solarpunk future.
