…together with Prof. Dr. Karmen Franinovic, designer Rasa Weber and futurist Eva Maria Spreitzer, we will be inviting the MA students of Interaction Design of ZHdK for a whole week in April to imagine future scenarios for lowering the work ethic in a future SLOWCIETY and to translate them into schematic prototypes.
In preparation for the workshop (which will start on April, 11th), we gave an introductory talk – which may or may not have enticed the students to rethink their own pace in everyday life.
We have also invited the students to stroll through the city of Zurich – with a slightly different perspective.
