The pathways of design today are not the “Evolution” of technology, or the “Processes” that smooth the interaction between people and objects, or the “Structures” that keep people from harm. What kind of human input is required here? This is precisely the question that needs to be asked. Design and technology, music and culture – we look at these, dissect these and make connections between them. We look at what emerges through a process of editing by asking questions. This was the theme to be discussed by Kei Wakabayashi, who had recently published Sayonara Mirai 2010-17 (Goodbye to the Future) (Iwanami Shoten, 2018).
WIRED originally launched in the United States as a magazine focusing on the key technology trends of the moment. Its editors in chief have included Kevin Kelly and Chris Anderson amongst others. Kei Wakabayashi served as the editor in chief for the Japanese edition of WIRED from 2012 to 2017, and was highly regarded for his editorial capabilities and his article contributions.
