Thesis Outline

I use Speculative Design, more specifically Design Fiction, as a way of exploring futures for emerging technologies and societies relationships with them. My research is concerned with developing visual tools to help engage the public in futures research, to help guide discussions, and to reveal the existing underlying social structures, necessary to describe alternative social imaginaries.

This research contributes to the emergent field of Social Futures research, through the development and analysis of Graphic Social Futures as a method to democratise the construction and discussion of possible futures. These Graphic Social Futures work by exposing possible flawed futures, and provoking debate on how things could, or should be, and encourages consideration for how we get there.
