The exhibition consists of a number of design proposals presented through models, photographic scenarios, videos and 3D texts. It's an experiment in how to exhibit conceptual design proposals where the narrative and ideas are as important as the designs. Everything is treated as an object, including texts and images.
It is absolutely not about prediction, but asking what if..., speculating, imagining, and even dreaming, to create and facilitate reflection on the kind of technologically mediated world we wish to live in. Ideally, one that reflects the complex, troubled people we are, rather than the easily satisfied consumers and users we are supposed to be.
Commissioned by Constance Rubini for the the 2010 St Etienne Design Biennale.
