Tim Parsons Speculative Design Workshop


Workshop description:

How design can help communicate issues of climate change? Students will learn about the emerging approaches of critical and speculative design and understand how object design, storytelling and scenario-building contribute to the creation of compelling design fictions that help the public re-think important issues of our time.

Building on the recent Future Climate [Hi]stories project Tim Parsons completed with his wife Jessica Charlesworth, students will generate new future climate fictions based on existing climate science, and design and make objects or images that illustrate their narrative.
