How can we design experiences using performance, machine learning, and speculative prototyping to construct alternative visions in times of political uncertainty?

Come explore this topic in a four-week intensive program guided by artists and speculative designers Sascha Pohflepp and Chris Woebken, you will be designing experiences through use of live-action role play techniques (LARPing), computer vision, machine learning, and speculative prototyping.

They will provide a framework that revolves around a rapidly changing world increasingly bound to be populated by non-humans, both natural and artificial—such as advanced AI systems. Making their perspectives experienceable is going to be a key angle to designing for the new societies that will emerge.

You will learn an overview of future studies tools, crafting scenarios, collaborative work, narrative prototyping, simulation techniques, character and game design for live action roleplaying, basics of advanced machine learning/neural networks, digital fabrication, environment/set design, project critique, exhibition production and documentation.
