Design Fiction is a way of storytelling. It is the use of diegetic prototypes to suspend disbelief about possible near futures. In this lecture, Julian Bleecker, designer, technologist and researcher at the Near Future Laboratory, will talk about how Design Fiction is a valuable technique for developing insights and creating objects that can bring about better, more habitable futures.
A cocktail reception will take place before the keynote lecture from 12:00 p.m.
