Learning from Sci-Fi and Prototyping Alternative Futures

Release Date: November 2, 2018
Abstract:
As a designer, Sophia Brueckner is interested in the application of embodied cognition to interaction design, wearable technology, digital fabrication, generative systems, sound, and, as a technology antidote, painting. In this presentation, she will share examples of her work in Sci-Fi Prototyping, which combines science fiction, functional prototypes, and the ethics of invention/design. By materializing speculative fictions, Brueckner seeks to understand and call attention to technology's controlling effects, while encouraging the ethical and thoughtful design of new technologies. Flyer attached. 
 
The Humanity+Technology lecture series offers an interdisciplinary conversation about the world we make and what it means.  The series brings leading humanities scholars to LTU’s campus, where they help us interpret, imagine, or understand the past, present, and future of our technologies.  Each event is free, open to the public, and designed to create spaces of dialogue between students, faculty, technologists, artists, business leaders, and community members.   For more information, contact Paul Jaussen (pjaussen@ltu.edu) or Franco Delogu (fdelogu@ltu.edu).
