Sci-fi and Afrofuturism

‘Afrofuturism is an intersection of imagination, technology, the future and liberation. “I generally define Afrofuturism as a way of imagining possible futures through a black cultural lens’” says Ingrid LaFleur, an art curator and Afrofuturist. LaFleur presented for the independently organized TEDx Fort Greene Salon in Brooklyn, New York. “I see Afrofuturism as a way to encourage experimentation, reimagine identities, and activate liberation.”’ – Y Womack, Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci-Fi and Fantasy Culture

Themes for Design and Thesis

For this project the themes that will be looked at I’m still working it out but it’s to do with Afro-futurism where I’ll be having a speculative Sci Fi look at the future. There are many interpretations of the future but it’s always based on the European and America view point and never really looking at what the future would look like from outside European and American view point.
