Æffect Journal

Futureality – Future Today, Past Tomorrow.

What if we knew about the things that will define us?

Project Context

The magazine on Futureality by the journal Æffect was published in parallel with the annual presentations at Central Saint Martins London 2018. The publication contains contributions by Bruce Sterling, Bifo, Helga Nowotny and Christopher Le Dantec on the topics of design futures, uncertainty and publics, as well as interviews with Sputniko! & Patternity.

The task for IDL was to design the opening feature based on the idea of a future researcher/designer/ethnographer who documents the present from an imaginary future.

The solution consisted of the conception and illustration of an independent artificial intelligence archivist, that archives and arranges possible future artifacts in the form of museum documentation.
