An exploration of the entanglements amongst science fiction and science fact, in order to show how they are not distinct, but infinitely knotted together. Why do this? In order to wonder — what are effective ways of designing the future?
Design fiction is making things that tell stories. It's like science-fiction in that the stories bring into focus certain matters-of-concern, such as how life is lived, questioning how technology is used and its implications, its ability to speculate about the course of events; all of the unique abilities of science fiction to incite imagination-filling conversations about possible habitable, life-affirming future worlds.
