What happens with children who didn't suffer any traumatic experiences? How will they grow up? In my project, I tried to show the future society where children grow up in a closed institution. A perfect life, perfect environment and education...Is it way to the perfect life? Or we will have social dysfunction and loneliness adults?
In this world, children grow up in a special institution until they turn 7. After that, they can be adopted. Children are tested by psychologists to help them get a perfect profession. Children grow up in perfect condition, with a special learning development game. Adopt parents doesn’t allow to change the profession for the child. Family is checked by childhood government.
