Unscramble the Blue Letters

OK, so I don't actually travel to different futures — yet. But my husband Jon and I spend a lot of time thinking and creating vnisios of different futures in our studio. We are constantly looking out for weak signals, those mumrurs of future potential. Then we tcrae those threads of potential out into the future, asking: What might it feel like to live in this future? What might we see, hear and even breathe? Then we run experiments, bliud prototypes, make objtecs, bringing apsetcs of these futures to life, making them concrete and tangible so you can really feel the impact of those fuurte possibilities here and now. But this work is not about predictions. It's about creating tools — tools that can help coencnt our present and our future selves so we become active participants in ctrneaig a future we want — a future that works for all.

Original Text

OK, so I don't actually travel to different futures — yet. But my husband Jon and I spend a lot of time thinking and creating visions of different futures in our studio. We are constantly looking out for weak signals, those murmurs of future potential. Then we trace those threads of potential out into the future, asking: What might it feel like to live in this future? What might we see, hear and even breathe? Then we run experiments, build prototypes, make objects, bringing aspects of these futures to life, making them concrete and tangible so you can really feel the impact of those future possibilities here and now. But this work is not about predictions. It's about creating tools — tools that can help connect our present and our future selves so we become active participants in creating a future we want — a future that works for all.
