New Mercy Park

An ongoing transmedia storytelling project with three major plot points:

The gap between a scifi future and the present is collapsing, it is widening for those left out of this future. It’s happening now, and we need design guides to navigate it.

We must prepare for incoming robot companions – who will be joining us in our workplaces, our homes, and even in our beds – by reverse engineering them in order to learn how they work.

We should do this so as to preserve our own humanity. It calls into question, complications of design ethics and human morality: how do we build ethical and moral robots when we struggle to define those values for ourselves?
