Stuart Candy

Stuart Candy is an Associate Professor in the Carnegie Mellon School of Design. An award-winning foresight practitioner, designer, artist and educator, his work aims to augment our capacity for navigating alternative futures by any means necessary. At CMU he is responsible for integrating foresight / futures practice throughout the design curriculum.

Professor Candy has been involved in and identified with hybrid design / futures currents such as “design fiction” and “speculative design” dating back to their early appearances in the 2000s, and has been instrumental in bringing these idioms to wider attention and application through presenting, teaching and writing, as well as expanding their boundaries through collaborative projects using transmedia storytelling, participatory design events, games, installations, and guerrilla interventions. His experiential futures work has featured worldwide in museums, festivals, conferences, and city streets, on the Discovery Channel, and in the pages of The Economist and Wired.
