  2. 2. Science Fiction Images • Technology • Urban Landscapes • Aliens • Media  Generic Exhaustion – Standard Repetition
  3. 3. Genres… • Need repetition to create defining parameters • Repetition affirms the attributes as essential and shapes what follows • When genres are exhausted, parody and hybrid variants enter the scene to reestablish, confirm, and re-imagine the norms in place
  4. 4. Urban Landscapes Modernist Iconography & Postmodern Decay
  5. 5. A Rose stays a Rose…
  6. 6. Media Aliens
  7. 7. Technology
  8. 8. Anicom-SciFi Animated (self aware) / Sit-Com Conventions / In-Jokes / Future Playground Science-Driven / self-reflexive parody
  9. 9. Mocking Exhaustion for Rejuvenation • Exploitation and reinflection – Tributes to origin story – Reflects on lineage and development – Adding to development by asking for new stage • Parodic reversion – Changing perspective on existing and well established tropes – Providing re-imagination of generic elements
  10. 10. Approaching Sci-Fi approaching Reality
