A design fiction on a humanoid blockchain system that controls friendships, based on the work balance in the household. The film is made to be a critical conversation opener about our digital future.
How do we design this kind of system in a ‘good’ way in terms of politics? Is consensus a sustainable model of governance? What would happen if this system was scaled to a city level? Do we want algorithms to interfere with our friendships? Is Alexandra’s role as an assistant a female stereotype?
This short film was made as part of the research project Circulate – Design Thinking for the Circular Economy that INC participates in.
