Julian Bleecker sends us "a short, pictorial essay on the arrangements of science fact and science fiction and the possibility of design shaped by both. The essay looks at how science fiction can be used to inform science fact, both in terms of the stories that science fiction tells and the actual production of props for science fiction film. Mostly it is about design and the way it can tell stories about future worlds and do so particularly well when it becomes entangled with science, fact and fiction."
Design Fiction: A Short Essay on Design, Science, Fact and Fiction (Thanks, Julian!)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
