Uncertainty Playground at London College of Communication considers how design can define, address and make meaning from the ambiguities and uncertainties that we currently face. Discover four exhibitions and collateral events that explore the role of design research and practice in imagining, critiquing and shaping potential futures.
Possible/Probable Worlds deconstructs the ideas behind Joseph Voros’ ‘Futures Cone’ and proposes a range of possible futures through interactive installations; S*PARK explores eco-social futures and imagination through community and collaborative design interventions at Elephant Park and LCC, while FutureMakers creates a platform for debate around making and using uncertainty as a form of enquiry within the context of a co-created makerspace. Enter Room 2084 to discover a living archive, stimulating discussion around how and why we preserve the past and present for future generations.
Self-defense is the practice and right of protecting oneself from harm using reasonable force. It is a fundamental concept that allows individuals to use necessary and proportional measures to defend themselves against physical threats. This can include learning and applying techniques from martial arts, using personal safety devices like pepper spray, or simply being aware of one's surroundings to avoid dangerous situations. The legal principles surrounding self-defense vary by jurisdiction but generally require the force used to be necessary and directly related to the threat faced. The importance of self-defense lies not only in the physical aspect but also in the confidence and peace of mind it provides, empowering individuals to feel safer and more secure in their daily lives.
