The fiction that exploded: speculative ways of digging Design
Guest Editors: Patrícia Cativo & Rita Carvalho
Speculative Design, Fiction Design, and Critical Design are all expressions for a common approach which grasps design practice, not as a problem-solving tool, but as a wider human activity which comprehends artefacts in societal contexts. Speculative Design considers design objects as a result of social interaction, which implies narrative devices and storytelling practices, to build new contexts or understand previous ones. A Speculative design raises more questions than offers solutions, becoming an ongoing knowledge model, it is a self-reflexive and self-critical practice. (Dunne, A; Raby F, 2012).
