Cynthia Selin will be joining us tomorrow at 2.30pm. We will discuss the assigned readings in addition to opening the floor to consideration of the following:
1) how can design fiction “support public dialogue about emerging technologies”?
2) which methodological features of mediated scenarios are most important to consider?
See you in the School of Design graduate studio at 1.30.
