We use GPS every day, but how much do we know about the satellites and systems which make it work?
In this half day workshop we will use Speculative Design to explore the back end of GPS. In Speculative Design we create objects and services for different possible worlds, thereby critiquing the ways they are used today. In the workshop, you will respond to a design brief for a fictional, GPS-themed scenario. You don’t need any experience in design to join this workshop, all skill sets are welcome, just bring an open mind and a willingness to explore and collaborate.
The workshop will be lead by Christopher Wood and Soomi Park from the Media & Arts Technology Programme, Queen Mary University of London. It is part of the Inside Out festival curated by The Culture Capital Exchange.
