Everything is tech now.
Everyone is tech now.
How we see, feel and imagine in the digital realm across geographies and ages is shifting at an unprecedented rate. From emerging technologies, new digital realities, algorithms that make things without us and smart materials the ‘real’ world is no longer as identifiable as it once was.
Craft and tech have more in common than you think. In blurring the language used to imagine what it means to make digitally, this talk seeks to ideate new possibilities to engineer empathetic design from a machine and open up conversations about the fundamental nature of making, the collapse of the real and the possibilities and challenges this shifting landscape is creating.
