Our trend 1984 was based around articles found discussing the growing presence of CCTV in schools and how there are over 1.85 million CCTV cameras in the UK. From this we looked further into the effect that surveillance and control would have on peoples lives. This gave us our trend title of George Orwell‘s novel 1984, where surveillance, control and thought crime were part of this Big Brother society. Currently Britons are caught on CCTV 70 times a day on average with the belief that the rise in CCTV on streets will stop violence and act as a deterrent. CCTV have been placed in toilets and changing rooms in more than 200 schools to combat bullying. The privacy campaign groups ‘Big Brother Watch’ have obtained figures that show some schools have a ratio of one camera for every five pupils. The level of surveillance being directed at children and who is allowed to view it is unchecked with no academic research that suggests it is having a positive impact. To add to this the potential of misuse is very high and could end disastrously. Through first hand research we asked a number of people their opinions, some responses were positive, expressing they would feel protected but there was lots of negative views as well. A quote from a parent states: ‘’I don’t like it because it doesn’t achieve what it says it will achieve, it doesn’t prevent crime it just names the victim and identify the criminal but doesn’t stop the crime.’’ As technology develops the ways of surveillance will become clearer and more compact. The new high definition CCTV is now so strong it can pick up the writing in text messages, focus on suspicious behaviour and can track a person’s face from half a mile away. It will soon be able to pick up on raised voices and detect smells too. IMAGE 6: Surveillance Youtube screenshot A quote taken from Emma Barnett at the Telegraph regarding the picturesTREND 1 1984 leaked of Prince Harry states “Now everyone has become the Paparazzi with their very own publishing platforms” This shows that finding privacy from the government or ourselves is becoming increasingly difficult. As the amount of CCTV cameras, surveillance and also mobile phones with cameras increase its either going to be the government watching us or each other. 5

Return to Neverland is a trend, which we have built up from researching about the young generation of today. With education being increasingly more expensive there is a debate on whether on not to go onto higher education. The options for growing up in this generation are narrow especially as the government are now planning on cutting more benefits. Going to University is an even larger decision than it was less than10 years ago. However with more gender equality in jobs, people seem more career driven in comparison to previous generations before when marriage, family and children were primary. With such a deep recession taking place its restricting people’s life choices and the young generation are conscious not to make the same mistakes as those before us. This is evident in the fact that 1 out 3 men and 1 out 6 women between 20-34 still live at home with their parents. Furthermore , this has crucially changed the parent and child relationship; it’s a lot different than the relationship of their parents and grandparents. On the other hand, young adults staying at home could be to do with Puer Aeternus, which is more famously known as the ‘Peter Pan Syndrome’ this affects people who do not want or feel unable to grow up. Thus people with the body of an adult yet the mind set of a dependant child. Humbelina Robles Ortega, the Professor of the Department of Personality and Evaluation and Psychological Treatment at the University of Granda said, “It usually affects dependent people who have been overprotected by their families and haven’t developed the necessary skills to confront life”. IMAGE 16: Creative career The young generation of today want to achieve and have a successful career however due to the recession the rise in costs from University costsTREND 2 RETURN TO NEVERLAND and living costs, they are being stifled and scared of making the same mistakes of the past generations. 11

exploring the possibility of using a CT scanner to create a 3D image of an organ. Using a small tissue sample from the patient to seed the printer, a new organ can be built layer by layer. We spoke to a twenty-year-old woman who only has one kidney that only partially functions. She has kidney dialysis and her response to the possibility of having a new kidney printed “to get off dialysis would be amazing and to use my own cells to create a new organ that would prevent the rejection happening, I would love this to happen to me!!” RESPONSIVE SURFACES The Tangible Textural Interface created by Eunhee Jo is a speaker that moves to the sound of music controlled by a fabric control panel. When discussing with Eunhee Jo how she thinks that Tangible Textural Interface can be developed she said “Lighting could be another significant criteria that shapes our indoor/outdoor urban landscape… Lighting could become more intelligent and discrete in our future lives.” FABRICAN Manel Torres was aware of the slow process of constructing garments and began investigating ways to speed up the process. He created Fabrican also incorporating a second skin texture. To add to this, garments could IMAGE 26: 3D Printing Shoe incorporate fragrances using Fabrican as well. Thus a completely new way of designing clothes in the future.

Orbital debris or Space Junk isn’t widely reported but could have devastating affect on how the entire world lives. NASA defines it as “man made objects in orbit which no longer serve a useful purpose” Since 1957 we have been littering our orbit with space junk and it deem too expensive and up until now pointless to bring the spaceships or satellites back down to earth. There is currently 21,00 pieces of orbital debris over 10 cm in size and 500,000 under. So why is this a problem? The orbital debris is flying around the earth at 7-8 km per second. To put this into perspective it would be like being hit by a sugar cube size of orbital debris would be the same as standing next to a hand grenade. The debris over 10 cm in size is tracked by the US Surveillance Network to try and move satellites out of the debris path. However, this system failed in February 2009 when a Russian military satellite and a USA communication satellite collided causing serious damage to both. There are 4 types of satellites; communication, navigation, scientific and remote sensing, if any of these were hit it would have a dramatic impact to us on earth. The communication satellite would affect the internet, radio and phone reception, damaging the way we presently communicate with each other. The navigation would affect GPS not just for cars but planes, boats and crucially the emergency services. The loss of a remote sensing satellite would shorten the weather prediction vastly. All these have become basic necessities for human kind that we take for granted. There have been many different attempts at inventions to try and clear up the litter, however, the speed and the volatility of the debris makes it extremely difficult. This coupled with the possible political implications if you can bring down a dead satellite or debris you can take out a live one too. To add to this already large problem there is the ‘Donald Kessler Syndrome’ theory which states that the rise in satellites will spark a chain reaction that will cover the earth is a vast cloud of debris meaning our access to space IMAGE 36: Satellites flying around the earth travel would be lost. The result would be the end to space education, learning what else is out there.TREND 4 ORBITAL DEBRIS Space Junk effects has the potential to effect every single person on the planet, imagine not being able to use your phone or the internet, even for a day. The impact on our generation who has grown up with such technology the repercussions could be devastating for all mankind. As Professor Richard Croether from the UK space agency said, “Space is infinite but the Space around Earth is finite”. 23
