Futurism

At Matador, we like to investigate what the future might bring for us, as travelers, artists, activists, and as a species.

What technologies will materialize during the next decade or two that could revolutionize the ways we travel and interact with the world? What advancements in thought might take place that will influence the way we see ourselves and our role on Earth?
