Collective Design Fiction

Embracing the global connectivity of online conferences and the richness of knowledge in physical places to unpack tales of the futures. No utopias, no dystopias.

* I think my works are transdisciplinary and interrelated, but for the sake of efficiency, they can be labelled as art or design. 


Stephanie Pau

Stephanie Pau holds a Master of Research (MRes) degree in Healthcare and Design from the Royal College of Art (2017-2019) and practices as a participatory speculative designer and an artist at ANDNAND. She specialises in researching and designing methods to bring together a broad range of people to collaborate, converse and collectively find visions beyond watered-down consensus. She practices with tomato plants and waste materials to examine dominant constructs and explore signals of more-than-human care and belonging.

Prior to that she was a solution architect and had founded a health tech start-up, which adds up to about 15 years of deep dive into patterns of machine and human systems and business ecosystems. She also holds a Masters of Engineering (MEng) degree in Electronics and Electrical Engineering with Management from Imperial College London (2004, 1st Hons). 

She has published about methodologies of design-based futures thinking and collective imagination in academic journals/conferences and has been sharing her knowledge through visiting/associate lecturer roles at the Royal College of Art and Central Saint Martins, UAL.
