SARI SUKI 2050 is an interactive installation that explores tropical futures through a neighborhood convenience store.
SARI SUKI 2050 was installed at 856 G Gallery as a part of our two month design residency in Cebu, Philippines. SARI SUKI 2050 is a site specific design installation that projects the local Filipino convenience store, the Sari Sari, 35 years into the future. Sari Sari stores are responsible for nearly 40% of all retail sales in the Philippines, with each store serving at least 20 families. By referencing the familiar Sari structure, VSOON rethinks convenience store items to illustrate concepts and imagine future utility. From Canned Crickets to True Food that address new proteins to Augmented Reality Contacts to Nanobot Cream that reference new technologies to Canned Air and Vintage Water that speak to climate displacement, SARI SUKI 2050 proposes a range of possible futures. A VSOON project.
