Human Experiences Project:

These posters and instruction manual were developed as diegetic prototypyes for BrainFit - a hypothetical domesticated memory modification technology (MMT) that exists in our future (approximatley 2050), developed from speculation on recent advancements in memory research and neuroscience technology.

With the recent emergence of Elon Musk’s Neuralink and other similar advancements, it is becoming increasingly important to ask questions about whether a future of MMTs is a future that we want, or are ready for- and is not as far-fetched as we may think. through this design fiction project, I aim to speculate on potential futures where such technology is commonplace and domesticated- and in doing so prompt ethical questions about the directions that we are taking technology in the present.

Design Fiction & Urban Design

Hi! I’m Becca- an interdisciplinary artist and designer specialising in urban design and design fiction. I am particularly interested in the use of speculative design and world-building to ask questions about our future- especially in the context of what cities and urban societies of the future may look like. Through both my art practice and my design work, I aim to open up new perspectives on our world by imagining alternate realities. In doing so, I hope to create a playful image of the future in which cities are designed for joy as much as they are for function.
