In 2013, he developed a framework (Time Machine Reverse Archaeology) which highlighted the use of a method of Reverse Archaeology. Archaeologists use found fragments of earlier eras to deduce a portrait of the vanished world which produced them. Here the process goes in the opposite direction: you would use a future scenario to generate a fragment from a world to come.
"How can artists and designers help to shape the future? Over a decade in the foresight field, I have learned that a key to the impactful exploration of possible futures is to bridge between abstract thought and concrete experience. Artists and designers can build bridges of imagination between these registers to take people into alternative futures – or at the very least, to visit there and bring amazing things back."
