︎ What’s the Matter with [in] Design Fiction? E Encinas, T Dylan, R Mitchell - 3rd Biennial Research Through Design Conference, 2017

The Dreamcatchers are design fictions in different ways. Some of them are props within stories. Others are physical artefacts that print poetry based on the dreaming patterns of those who sleep in their presence.



The were design to study the workings of fiction when it is stripped out of the future as a characteristic that confers plausibility. Findings from the sudy were published as papers in academic conferences.

The Digital Dreamcatcher was exhibited in the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.
