The project Life is Good for Now by Bernhard Hopfengärtner and IXDM researcher Ludwig Zeller just received the Speculative Concept Award of the Core77 design competition.

Life is Good for Now offers a speculative view on a Switzerland that decided to realize the right for informational self-determination. In four scenarios that are narrated through objects and speech from the perspectives of inhabitants of that world the cultural potential and consequences of Big Data in the context of medicine, property and literature are exemplified.

The project was commissioned by the Swiss Center for Technology Assessment (TA-SWISS) and premiered at the exhibition Poetics and Politics of Data organized by HeK (House of Electronic Arts Basel) and IXDM.
