Polyphonic Futures — Knowledge Exchange in Bio-Digital Space

This practice-led design research explores imaginaries of the bio-digital — the space where computational thought interfaces with biological matter. The thesis looks specifically at configurations and entanglements of bio-digital objects, interactions and their enabling biomaterials.

The outcome of this research suggests 'collective futuring' through the development of bio-digital imaginaries and offers transferable methods that foster democratic knowledge exchanges between design, science, and society. This research proposes a shifted role for designers as mediators and actants that support informed decision-making across converging disciplines towards more sustainable and ethical futures.
