This is a space that provides tools for enabling collective brainstorming on alternative imaginaries surrounding technologies. There is substantial evidence that most of the algorithms that command our digital interactions are biased, particularly towards reproducing what black feminist scholar patricia hill collins calls the matrix of domination (capitalism, heteropatriarchy, white supremacy and settler colonialism). In other words, tech is currently designed in a way it helps to maintain the status quo of social inequality and the norms of consumerist, misogynist, racist, ableist, gender binarial and heteropatriarchal society.

What would the future look like if we could hack this trend?

This project is developed in partnership with coding rights and MIT co-design studio, inspired by a speculative feminist writing workshop from cooptecniques, methodologies co-designed by coding rights at ietf to bring human rights considerations into standards and protocols, and by contemporary design ideation practices. Situation cards were based on the Feminist Principles of the Internet.
