Words Spindle

This summer the Design Museum presents United Micro Kingdoms: A Design Fiction.

Revolving around multiple perspectives on a fictional United Kingdom, the exhibition sees England devolved into four self-contained micro kingdoms, each free to experiment with gouvernance, economy and lifestyle.

The creators Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby use elements of industrial design, architecture, politics, science and sociology to provoke debate around the power and potential of design. The exhibition challenges assumptions about how products and services are made and used in order to explore the social, purchase viagra online from canada cultural and ethical implications of emerging technologies. Each kingdom circulates around the respective themes of totalitarianism, nuclear energy, rebellion against technology and the embrace of biotechnology.

Sure to be a thought provoking exhibition, Dunne and Raby’s United Micro Kingdoms runs from 1st May – 26th August 2013
