The inspiration behind this series of prints comes from entries and imagery found in a 1963 survival manual. After reading it cover to cover, I started thinking about how, based on current technology, collective thought, and available resources at any given point, the guide will give different instructions.   

For example, the 1963 manual would give instructions on starting a fire with friction, whereas today’s manual would most likely give instructions on creating a fire with a cell phone. 

How will the 2061’s survival manual instruct us in making a fire when we find ourselves stranded in a forest?
