We are building technology that zombifies us. Unsettlingly similar to how a fungus can zombify an ant. Yet fungus is part of a set of checks and balances that keeps ecosystems balanced. Our mass zombification by our devices doesn’t balance anything. It captures attention in mass, for the benefit of a few.
There are many social and environmental challenges we face that are realtively easy to visualise. Things like crowding, poverty and drought. Strangely, it’s the small things that are often the biggest problem. Especially when there is a lot of them.
We love stories. However, some problems only make sense when we look at them as an interconnected set of realtionships. This is the lens of systems thinking. Putting storytelling and systems thinking together is a potent combination, especially when dealing with complex issues like climate change.
