Design Fiction: From Props To Prototypes

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Using fiction to design is a way to invigorate design, moving the practice beyond the routine, everyday notion of what design does. Designing with the impulses and motivations of fiction allows designers to speculate and wonder beyond convention and expectation. It allows a designer the latitude to think through to the unexpected, unconventional, undisciplined and unheard-of possibilities. Science fiction is a particularly interesting approach to design. This would couple the authority and vision of science fact, with science fiction's intelligent, mindful extrapolation into alternate futures. I will discuss design fiction in a practice of design that operates somewhere between fact and fiction, with practical motivations and pragmatic outcomes.
