Paraphrasing Richard Seymour below, it used to be that what we imagined could extend beyond what we can do. But what if that were no longer the case? What we can do now, actually extends beyond what we can imagine? Then our future - and the future of everything around us would be inhibited by a lack of imagination.
It says something about the social development role of art, design and technology. That with some imagination, and imaginative use of the tools that we already have like the internet and other tools of technology, we might actually have it in and around us to deal with many of the problems we face now, especially as a nation. And we're talking about the big things like education and poverty and corruption and transparency and progress.
It's something to think about. It's something we think about.
