For week 23, our theme is Hearts – Science Fiction
So, what is science fiction about?
Science fiction is a genre that explores the possibilities of the future, the wonders of technology, and the implications of scientific advancements on society. It takes us on journeys to distant planets, alternate realities, and timelines yet to be discovered. Science fiction presents a unique blend of scientific accuracy and creative speculation, challenging our perceptions of what is possible and pushing the boundaries of human imagination.
One of its characteristics is to reflect on our society, on our own existence, and the potential consequences of our actions, often through thought-provoking themes such as artificial intelligence, space exploration, time travel, and dystopian societies.
Another of its characteristics is to create a sense of wonder. Science fiction allows us to escape the mundane and delve into the extraordinary. It is about igniting curiosity, sparking awe, and awakening the childlike wonder within us. A sense of wonder is often born out of the unknown, the unexplored, and the seemingly impossible.
The task for week 23
For this week, the goal is simple: take a Sci-Fi picture that creates a Sense of Wonder.
However, as a twist and challenge, I want you to think beyond the obvious. We often associate SciFi with space exploration, and thus I challenge you to base your picture on something that does not occur in space, on another planet, or in a spaceship.
For example, think of Blade Runner, Godzilla, Matrix, Minority Report, Her, The Hunger Games, Back to the Future, Terminator, Mad Max, 12 Monkeys, The Thirteen Floor, Donnie Darko, Brazil or Dark City.
However, feel free to think beyond movies and explore literature, comic books, or video games yet to be made into a movie.
Remember to use the format 4:5 and the hashtags #SiPgoesTGIF_SciFi #SiPgoesTGIF #SiPgoesTGIF2023 on social media.
You are welcome to share your work and behind-the-scenes here on Discord, and starting from Friday, you can post your pictures on Instagram.
Looking forward to seeing your wonderful images!
For me, this week is a way to pay tribute to a science fiction movie that happens to turn 30…
