The Design Fiction Matrix: A synthesis tool for grounding fiction scenarios in facts from reality

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article in JournalResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This explorative paper presents a didactic synthesis tool to support designers and design students in adopting design fiction as a method for speculative design. We present the theoretical underpinnings behind the development of the framework, the logic of the tool itself, and situate the tool among the current discourse of design fiction. Finally we present a series of reflections upon the recent year’s application of the tool in a design educational setting, showing the different ways the tools can be applied and represented in practice.
