Stuart Candy is a multimedia futurist; he studies human behavior in contexts that don’t yet exist. His pioneering work explores the communication of scenarios through designed experiences and artifacts; these exercises in ambient foresight and anticipatory democracy are intended to engage the public in creative thinking about possible and preferable futures. He is drawn to collaborative opportunities that combine practical impact, deep creativity, and fun.

Candy is a researcher at the Hawaii Research Center for Futures Studies in Honolulu and a research fellow at the Long Now Foundation in San Francisco. He is completing his PhD in political science at the University of Hawaii. His widely read blog, the sceptical futuryst, is at www.futuryst.com.
