We recently carried out a #foresight study on the #future of "man & #interior" for the Interieur Foundation (B) and put 5 fictional companies on show during the trade fair, each presenting #future inspired products & services, to provoke debate.

I spent the weekend painting a physical street view of 15 cardboard idea-boxes for a #stadslab2050 get-together on #sustainable #energy initiatives for #Antwerp's city centre. +100 people gathered around them to develop new ideas.

I just devoured "Buckminster Fuller's Universe - His Life and Work" by Lloyd Steven Sieden. 'Bucky', the man, the mind, his worldview, his life, his approach to problem solving, ... All are uniquely fascinating. A gem of inspiration.

The future of care looks bright after an energising, 1st 2-day #carecamp of #opencarelab. From life coaches & emo-robots, to multigenerational neighbourhood systems, modular care facilities and crowdfunded health, etc. http://www.opencarelab.com

I like to speculate about the #future and tease others into doing so as well. #napkinfutures gathers some of my notes, probes, provocations in the form of a #sketch and a fictional #story excerpt. http://napkinfutures.tumblr.com
