More on Bringing the Future to Life

Trevor Haldenby just put his incredibly long look at the use of transmedia storytelling online. I’m looking forward to sitting and reading this.

This book-length exploration into the creation of the project, and my motivations to design and reflect on it as a futurist, took me just about a year to write. Hopefully itโ€™s a bit faster to read. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Submitted to OCAD University for the degree of Master of Design in Strategic Foresight and Innovation. This book reflects on a research project exploring the use of transmedia storytelling techniques to materialize speculative future scenarios. It also highlights a transmedia futures project called ZED.TO, created in 2012 in Toronto by Trevor Haldenby and The Mission Business.

Our “Flat-Pack Futures”

At Media Future Week Scott Smith presented a talk called “Beware of Flat-Pack Futures” and it’s worth watching. Cory Doctorow describes it:

His “flat-pack futures” are the insufficiently weird, bland, like-today-only-moreso futures we see depicted all around us. He proposes a weirder, more textured, more contradictory future and a toolkit for thinking about it.
