Future Tense - The Challenge of Imagining Alternative Futures

Smyth, Michael

Authors



Abstract

So why is it so difficult to imagine futures? Not the futures set in galaxies far far away, but the ones connected to the present that lie tantalisingly just beyond the horizon. Futures still tethered to variants of today’s infrastructure. This essay will consider the role of politics and technology and how they shape and influence the imagination of futures.
