According to our common key focus, we all have something about the culture. Then we have our SWOT analysis. We decided to set our group concept as Cultural Misunderstanding. This idea comes from my own experience at Major Studio 1 class. We I try to convey the meaning of "Color glasses" which is a metaphor of having bias or stereotype to others in Chinese culture. I found it's tough for others to understand except for Chinese students.  

Reading Response

What is ‘Visionary Fiction’?

Visionary fiction is a kind of Apocalyptic literature. It has a variety of genre, including science fiction, fantasy, horror, magical realism, alternative timetables, and  on. it helps us better understand the current dynamics and help us recognize what the future will look like. There is no definitive answer to the future. But all the ideas come from the current dynamics. As mentioned in Quantum Mechanics, what will happen in the future is happening now. So it is not a blind guess, but a step by step logical interpretation.  The aim of visionary fiction is as other kind of art, to advance justice.

Ferguson is the Future

The starting problem of this kind of science fiction is from the thorny issue in life, and it is not as sci-fi as other science fiction, the starting question is very close to life and even we are going through it now. In the novel it is only to develop it to the extreme. For example, this article focuses on the use of stem cell culture for organ regeneration and regeneration technology. If stem cells can be replicated and replaced by aging or injured organs, then humans can get eternal life. Various people in the social field have started discussions on whether to organize organs through stem cells. Aiyana is the protagonist of this story. She was shot by the police, but in 2054 she was implanted with a new heart and had a second life. She has also been assembled by scientists to give new skills. Discuss the history, current and future manifestations of the social reality we hope to create and develop.The purpose of this novel is not to let us believe in the content described in the novel, but to allow us to expand our view of the future in a perceptual way, and

Description:

This is a world that everyone has their own culture and languages. People have to use AI translation system in their body to help them communicate with each other.

People working in the service industry rely on AI translation system to help them satisfy customers' needs. If they do it well they will be very rich, otherwise, they will go bankrupt. A good cook “communicates” with his customers to decide what they want to eat, during their communication progress, their AI translation system collect data of the customer and decide their customer’s preferences. So everyone has to develop and innovate their own AI translation system to make it more intelligent and accurate to help them understanding what others are thinking about. To some extent, everyone is a geek, and they all have basic coding ability to maintain and manage their AI translation system.

And a fashion design company produces a clothing system that allows fashion designers to remotely design customized clothes for people, and made virtual clothes for them to wear.
