Group Rooms 4 & 5
By invitation only.
What’s real anyway? We live in a world with wars, mass migrations and strategic ploys for influence and occupation. This summer VR boomed, and drones flew military sorties and interrupted commercial carriers. AI and robotics were topical on the BBC. Chinese stocks plummeted. The words Volkswagen and emissions now have a different sense.
A design research seminar organised by Andrew Morrison taking up fabulation, design fiction and approaches to speculative inquiry. We’re gathering a small group of the curious. Presenters and participants alike.
