While preparing a 2030 Tech Report ... COVID19 came upon us.A true Future wakeup call for all aspects of our lives. With such acceleration many futuristic visions, both utopian and distopian, will finally come true.
I will collect here my thoughts and projects resulting from reflecting on the technological and sociological impact of it all. I'm calling it #2020SOS With the aim to spark hope and bring positive guidance to Innovation strategists around the globe.For comments reach out on any social network @elenacorchero.

There are 8 (chinese Lucky number) pictures in this series. The one that turned out most symbolic is: OXFORD CIRCUS- Firstly, notice how the lamp post resembles a gigant cross, to reflect on those who sadly departure during this worldwide transformation.- On the other hand also, and a subject I'll discuss separately, one can understand it as the death of consumerism and retail as we know it. Something brands have been discussing and suffering for long and are now forced to face.
Taken on Sunday 22nd of March, just before the Lockdown. I went for a bike ride with a Samsung Gear 360 camera to explore some of the busiest places in London which are now temporarely deserted. The rest of locations are:Picadilly Circus, Tottenhan Court Road, Hoxton Sq, Liverpool Street StationSpitalfield Market, St Leonard's Church Kingsland Road & Boxpark Shoreditch House.
