In writing Balls, Lily Cole researched the real life stories of 18–19th Century foundlings, and the socio-political context that inspired the work of two pioneering individuals, living a century apart — Emily Brontë and Thomas Coram. By setting Balls in the present, the film invites us to consider what has changed in the last two to three hundred years.

Since Covid burst onto the scenes in late 2019/early 2020, life as we know it has changed. Just what does a pandemic mean for technology? And similarly what does technology mean for a pandemic? Here we will consider how science and technology are working to keep pace with the developments of covid, and how the technology industry is adapting and innovating to make sure it stays relevant in a world that has changed monumentally.

People are depending on technology more than ever to fill the void where face to face interaction is no longer possible. The way we work, study…

User-centred design has taken the world in the wrong direction. The shift to Planet Centric Design needs to happen now.
