Time Wanderer is a speculative design project exploring the future of time travel. The project invites people to reflect on present-day situations related to international travel and imagine how time boundaries might be regulated and controlled in the future.
The project models the experience of passing through the time customs in 2089.
The project organizes thought experiments and speculations related to the concept of time border by branding Time Wanderer, a time travel agency that protects the boundaries of time and processes travelers at time customs.
The welcome video introduces Time Wanderer and time travel, and it streamlines the time customs entry process.
The check-in kiosk inspects visitors by asking a group of questions related to their identities and time trips, and gives back a specific result message (admitted, rejected, or undetermined) based on their answers.
By involving thought experiments and fictions related to the idea of time boundary in the questions and result messages in the check-in kiosk system, the project aims to facilitate people’s thinkings and discussions about where the concept of time border might be leading.
