The Transmedial Fictions Working Group (TraFic) focuses on alternative futuring strategies in contemporary futurisms across media. Its goal is to understand the philosophical principles of future thinking and making around the world.
Because imagination - that faculty that expands the human mind to the size of the universe, that makes empathy possible (you have to have some imagination to put yourself in another's shoes)-also allows us to dream. Science Fiction and fantasy posit other paths, alternative futures, different social arrangements as well as technologies, other ways that we could be. Before we do, we must dream.
