The awesome Thomas Thwaites, a previous speaker at Alterfutures 4 , was presenting his Toaster Project at the TEDSalon in London last November and can now be seen on the infamous TED website. It really portrays an enthusiastic Thomas at his best and although the comments from the TED website have gone a little off piste, I think what he manages to communicate in 10 minutes is genius and exactly what it is meant to do - create discussion. And this project by the way is not about how well you can toast bread.
We are interested in speculative design projects that question received expectations of the future and propose compelling alternatives.
We know that there are a small number of people thinking and working in this way and quite a few of them are in London. We want to gather together and create an opportunity to share and critique work in progress, start new projects and collaborations and get a discussion going.
