Engineering Fictions (ef) is a counter-public space devised to support transdisciplinary research and communication through word play, writing and conversation.
ef sessions structure conditions for thoughtful conversation and spontaneous writing in relation with technology.
The structure of ef is based on a triangulation between the roles of a host, a catalyst and a seed which happens within the shifting forum of people who gather into each session.
The ef sessions change over time and in contingency with the context and people involved.
Each session can accommodate 10-12 members who participate through a light framework developed between the host, catalyst and seed. Typically, the sessions take place in the evening, though this depends on the context and the catalyst of each session.
ef is devised by Jessica Foley, Writer-in-Residence with CONNECT.
