Design Nonfiction by Tellart explores the role of designers in a technological landscape that changes much faster than humans can. For whom should you design, with what concept of humanity in mind? Who makes the rules and who has a voice in the design process? Is it better to hide the inner workings of complex technologies, or to show their seams to the user? How can you invite people to collaborate with machines that ‘see’ and ‘think’ differently than we do, and that operate with more and more autonomy? Will we be adversaries or creative partners?
