As Fak’ugesi Resident Jepchumba investigated the notion of ‘Futurist Thinking’ for Johannesburg. In a public workshop Jepchumba worked with creative young people in prototyping speculative futurist technologies. This was followed by the development of the “future selfie booth” in the museum to which she invited members of the public to leave messages to their future selves.
