As Capitalism is failing our agency is reducing rapidly with it - how do we take back our agency? How do we build a new and more equitable world picture?
Developing out of my over-arching project exploring how capitalism got into our head and how we get it out, ongoing projects try to understand and illuminate discriminatory social practices and economic drivers of injustice – writing speculative fiction for the networked community (good and bad) I believe capable of working collaboratively to make positive change.
Futures With Futures is a collection of short stories built around a scaffolding of real-world events. Each story lets current ideas play out in imagined near futures of corporate nation states, human logistics and complete environmental collapse. The characters, experiencing different realities, all take control, showing how even the smallest act of resistance can have global effect.
Future Ventures is supporting the development of a ninth generative story focussed on hope and unthought thoughts, co-authored with a group of 18-20 year olds.
