L'Atelier would like to promote a discussion around privacy. Envisioning was asked to illustrate the impact of emerging technologies and how our decisions today might affect our privacy in the future.


Envisioning created an interactive narrative in a web interface. The story changes based on the reader's choices. In the story we introduce Will, a fictional virtual assistant set 10 years in the future. This piece of design fiction with engaging illustrations is a logical extrapolation of the capabilities of current technologies and the context they might exist within.
