Sands Fish at Eyeo 2017 | A Guide To Building Parallel Realities |
Speculative Design creates props for other timelines, parallel or future. It uses the language of design to shift us into another reality via objects and devices that aren’t born of the status quo, or of our own time or place. In this talk, Sands explores how, using design, art, and media, we can embody ideas and worlds in objects, and look critically at our assumptions about how our world has to be. He details his work at the MIT Media Lab building provocative police futures to question who participates in this design space, and how we might create more humane alternatives.
