Emerge attracts futurists to collaborate with scientists, designers artists is redesign of future
Date:2/24/2012

around eight areas where ASU research is breaking new ground from disease destroyers to human enhancement. These Futures@ASU presentations will lead into interdisciplinary workshops where one of the most exciting results of the conference is expected to happen.

Much of the excitement generated is the anticipation of the intense, highly interactive workshop format that allows artists and scientists such freedom to collaborate, experiment and explore future possibilities together.

"A storyteller is as insightful to a sustainability team as a climatologist. The biodesign lab is as creative as the sculpture studio, a musician is as important to an educational technology team as a programmer, and an engineer is as crucial to an immersive theater play as the director," explained Rikakis.

Cynthia Selin, assistant professor in the ASU School of Sustainability and the Center for Nanotechnology in Society and one of the conference's three principal organizers, agreed. "Emerge is a chance to rehearse, play with, articulate, and build out alternative futures," she said. "It will spark new ideas for how to thrive amidst uncertainty and the escalating complexities of modern times. We are not searching for utopias but a measure of moxie in charting sustainable pathways," Selin said.

Leaders in the "Design Fiction'' movement including Sterling, Julian Bleecker, co-founder of Near Future Laboratory, and Stuart Candy, a senior foresight and innovation specialist at Arup, a global design firm, are among the workshop leaders. The products of these workshops provocative and evocative stories, games, performances and objects from which a vision of the future develops will be shared with the public beginning at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, March 3, when ASU President Michael Crow will be joined in Neeb Hall by authors Sterling, Stephenson, Mau, Turkle and Brand in a series keynote talks and panel discussions inspired by the workshop explorations.
