Undergraduate Design Fiction: Framework to Enact a Guerrilla Future

Designing believable future fiction narratives can be a catalyst to provoke discussion and debate with institutional and public audiences, and a powerful means of educating critical and reflective designers that question the ethics of what and why we create.

E. Scott Denison, assistant professor and foundations coordinator at The Ohio State University (OSU), presents a particular model for design fiction—a guerrilla future that draws context from a project-based collaborative studio that brought together undergraduates from industrial design, interior design and visual communications. The objective is to suggest a reproducible framework with an undergraduate design studio. enacted with a student, public or corporate audience.
