“The future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed”
Set against the backdrop of Berlin, this research-driven studio seeks to peel back layers of history to catch a glimpse of the future. In response to the theme of Posthumanism, students used a transmedia toolkit to create design fiction through intelligent graphic systems, dynamic experiences and immersive environments. The studio was co-taught by acclaimed science fiction authorBruce Sterling to create Berlin Scenarios for the year 2033, involving posthuman AI, posthuman robotics and posthuman genetics.
