[ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM]
Speculative Design is a cyborg practice that harkens back to past futurist movements, insisting on a moveable spectrum between art and radical social science. What would it mean to imagine a world without oil and its derivatives? This symposium, with special-guest practitioners in speculative design, will be followed by a game workshop open to all. For one day, let us explore and imagine what it might mean – it might take – to imagine a post-petroleum future.
