‘Future Archaeologies’ is a sculptural installation by Spanish artist Fran Meana that combines analog and digital techniques, contemporary art, visual anthropology and science fiction to construct an industrial archeology archive. The project takes the work of the architect Joaquín Vaquero Palacios (Oviedo 1900-Madrid 1998) as a starting point to explore our industrial past and approach the current debate on energy management.
