Abstract: 

Scenes from Suburbia: Unreal Strategies for Real Change reimagines the suburbs as a “landscape of dreams” in order to develop an alternate vision – for intrinsically the suburbs are tied to dreams of homeownership and community. Illustrations and short narratives informed by surrealism and speculative imagination provide the tools through which to investigate possible new futures for the paradigmatic suburb. In a realm between practicality and fantastical vision, these depictions strive to reveal the suburbs’ latent potential to become relational landscapes providing dwellers with orientation in the world, and a sense of connection to community, city, and environment. Reimagining the suburbs infuses everyday life for suburban residents with delight and surprise.
