After reading several articles for our Design Fiction class I became to notice a trend within the articles. The articles generally talk about designing a future scenario and how they tackled this process from a design point of view. What almost no article talks about is how to get to this future. The next steps are completely ignored. It is “This is our process, these are the results have fun with them.”
Designing the future is nice and all, but what is the point if you do not know how to get there? Is the point merely to inform the ‘general’ public and let them think about. There must be a more efficient and effective way to create this future. I am of the opinion the world of Design Fiction is doing no honour to their work be just letting in merely exist as artifacts and stories. There is no group of people who will start to work on this next steps and that is why I am still a bit skeptical of the concept of Design Fiction.
