SPECULATIVE NEEDS XOXO
MENA DESIGN RESEARCH CENTER
The MENA DRC presents a speculative & design-fiction exhibition of prototypes generated through a series of participatory workshops with 9 Lebanese universities. Through fiction, forecasting, and extrapolation the exhibition materializes possible futures and alternative scenarios through unusual future objects that challenge our tame views and the status-quo. Design is used as a medium to explore topics such as emerging digital anxieties, ethical machines, DIY Currencies, living with cyborgs, techno-spiritualism, digital shrines, strange biospheres and mutations, E-cosystems, and much more.
