The Big Idea
Addressing the designer's role as mediator of our future environment, a series of micro-interventions woven into the fabric of Florence, Venice and New Orleans provide commentary on the implications of potential future scenarios.
Through human experience, we know things will change. Just as historical artefacts reveal past cultural tendencies, this project uses tangible artefacts – that have been purposefully designed around future scenarios – to tell stories about the future in our present, local environment.
The project employs emotional engagement and is built on the notion that innovation can be cultivated through direct action. By taking global drivers, applying future narratives within local contexts, and shaping personal experiences through the designing and making of future artefacts; the project presents an alternate approach to addressing the many uncertainties of our future by placing people at the centre of the futurology argument.
