Post-Planetary Design

Spring 2018

Taught By: Edward Keller

Section: A

CRN: 2502

Credits: 3

This course will run as a design research seminar exploring all the aspects of design on a post-planetary scale. Students will view science fiction films, read bright and dark futurologies, scan, debate, and re-scan critical histories and theories, and ultimately produce a set of 'black papers', short videos and/or interactive projects that speculate on the next 50 to 1000 [yes, one thousand!] years of cross disciplinary design. Outside guests and collaborators will participate in the course via guest lectures, workshops, panels, and be invited to join in the creation of a set of content modules outlining the full spectrum of risks and benefits of going off-world, of taking ecology beyond the human, and beyond the planet.

Open to: All university graduate degree students; undergraduate seniors by permission of instructor.
