Video series: What if we changed the rules of the game?

What if we changed the rules of the game? With that question in mind, in 2022, Waag went on an expedition to a new planet, planet B, which we can completely redesign. And so we can also redesign systems: the economy, the way we treat nature, the digital world and how we design products. During the big 2022 Waag events, Gijs Gijs Gijs & Gijs went into the audience to ask how they would do this. Take a look!

Please note: the videos are in Dutch.

 

Museum Night 2022: Internet

During Museum Night Amsterdam 2022 at the Waag, we asked people who were standing outside in the queue: what if we changed the rules of the game for our internet use?

 

Dutch Design Week 2022: Product design

At Dutch Design Week, Waag exhibited in the Klokgebouw with the expo Open Design Now! In it, six prototypes of open hardware were shown, all of which can be used to measure one's own living environment. We asked the audience about the rules of the game in product design, and how they would like to change them.

 

Better Future Now Festival: Economy

During the Better Future Now Festival in the Amsterdamse Poort, we asked shoppers which rules of the game in our current economic system they would most like to change.

 

Surfana Festival: Climate

Musical chairs, but differently at Surfana Festival 2022: with our feet in the sand and the murmur of the sea in the background, we asked the attending surfer dudes and gals about the rules of the game of climate adaptation. What lessons from designing a new planet can we apply in the here-and-now?

 

About Waag Futurelab

Waag Futurelab is a platform for designers and artists to research current societal issues. Waag brings together all relevant parties through expositions, presentations, experiments, debates and reflection. In the four-year Expeditions to planet B programme, Waag Futurelab is finding the answer to the following design questions: what if a planet B would exist? How would we re-design our world and our lives? And what does that teach us about the here and now?
