Plastic Futures enters phase two

Plastic Futures seminar entered phase earlier this week, which means we are moving more heavily into the designing of future scenarios. This is involving imagining ourselves in 2049, when we are much more elderly and working through design ideas about that period to explore and unfold potential futures, based on knowledge we can garner both in the present, and of the present. The aim is to stimulate some deep generative critique on what's potentially looming, and to discuss and debate these critiques. The outcomes of this seminar will be exhibited and debated at the Design Laboratory 2009: 2040 Systems
