Design futurism is a powerful tool to speculate far ahead futures. It is often used to critic current issues. In order for design futurism to be well received by audiences, the understanding of the current issue is a must and building a plausible system around the issue in the future is needed.
This case study asks “When technology exacerbates existing global inequalities, what kind of world do we find ourselves in?”
In the last 40 years, technology transformed the lives of hundreds of millions in the developed world; but it also left billions behind elsewhere. Not everyone shared the fruits of this rapid transformation. As countries left behind unraveled, the even-more-developed countries faced immense pressure on their borders, with techno-literate citizens of failed states seeking refuge in their techno-havens.
