About Work Futur

Hello World!

Cyrus is a designer, explorer, artist and researcher who uses speculation, design and critical methods as a way to trigger imaginative thinking about our abilities, limits and vulnerabilities. He likes to focus on (un)desireable futures, exploring how technology can make us more human.
His work examines the effects of advanced digital technologies on society, namely Mixed Reality, AI and Blockchain as a means to explore the theme of what it means to be human in the anthropocene. He sees himself as a critical optimist, drawing inspiration from nature, philosophy, the arts, science, and above all collaboration.

He is a graduate of the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID) and the University of Nottingham. In a previous life he was the global innovation and UX lead at L'Oréal in Paris, so he understands what business and innovation really mean within corporate structures.

Over the past few years his work has been awarded, and shown internationally in publications and events including TrailerPark, IxDA, Paris Budget Participatif, Space10, and CIID.

He is the co-founder of:

Media Sifter - using Blockchain to fight Fake News

What the Block - a platform using design to make Blockchain more Human

DEARS - an institute for the future based in Bangalore.
