Recent re-articulations of the “social imaginary" (Castoriadis 1987) have emerged due to the proliferation and dispersion of new technologies in everyday life. What effect can enacting imaginative narratives for the near future have on present conditions? By reflecting upon two case studies in Serbia (2006) and Montenegro (2009), this paper considers the construction of narrative and spectacle as crafting of social imaginaries. Drawing on participatory, ethnographic and practice-based research methods, these interventions navigate economic and social change by connecting location-based situations with global media networks.
