Technologies that our culture had once accepted as fiction are now increasingly available; many more exist just outside of mainstream visibility. We have entered the beginnings of a previously fictional world that has been prophesied for the past half century. As designers, we are responsible for adapting to this futuristic environment.
What are some creative ways identity systems can be influenced by this new technological landscape? What will happen to printed media as more interactive and efficient ways of gathering information become available? How can we bring this technology and futuristic thinking to mainstream society?
Informed by contemporary/near-future technologies and futurist theory, we will envision the potential visual landscape of the next several decades. We aim to start a conversation about designing in this immersive technological world.
