Abstract:

Fictioning, Futuring, Worldbuilding with Emerging Technology, Art + Design

This talk considers the role of story and the art + science of pretend—as tools. From Biotech Beach, California to data farm triangles and mineral mining in Appalachia to speculative rural futures in Nebraska that focus on food, water, and energy—how can the use of fiction, simulation, immersion and interactivity shape new realities?
