4 New Stories Whenever I Can ;)

DESIGN FICTION

" Design fiction is the cousin of science fiction. It is concerned more about exploring multiple potential futures rather than filling out the world with uninspired sameness. Design fiction creates opportunities for reflection as well as active making."
 
- Julian Bleeker ( Design Fiction: A Short Essay on Design, Science, Fact. & Fiction )

Speculative design

“Design today is concerned primarily with commercial and marketing activities but it could operate on a more intellectual level. It could place new technological developments within imaginary but believable everyday situations that would allow us to debate the implications of different technological futures before they happen.” 
 
- Anthony Dunne & Fiona Raby ( Speculative Everything )
