Fabricating Alternatives

The paradox of (un)limited progress

In this session, we will introduce Fabricating Alternatives and let you experience a taste of this co-creation methodology, whose key outputs are: inventions, or tangible prototypes that exist in this alternative/fictional reality; interventions  where these inventions are placed in a specific part of our reality (ie. a public space or an institution).
