Abstract

In an interactive design fiction performance we ex- plore the notion of non-human intelligences and their active agency in political discourse. Through speculati- ve means a future context serves as both backdrop and design space for debates between humans and plants, exploring how the scientifically envisioned increased means of communication between the two could sha- pe new solutions and realities. The performance hence deals with an expanded notion of “participation” and debate beyond mere human actors. In a multidiscipli- nary setting, participants stemming from both design and other fields of research (e.g. (ethno)botany, (neuro) biology, anthropology, etc.) will engage in a role-play and joint speculative storytelling effort aimed at explo- ring new questions regarding the challenges and oppor- tunities shaped by such a future world.
