We live at ever-higher speeds. In modern technological culture, speed has been internalised as an end-in-itself; our designed world further reinforces the value we place on speed – from high-speed trains to ultra-fast information networks. Speed defines our products, our environments, our way of life, and our imaginations. Growth is embedded in our culture. It drives the design of artefacts, systems, and environments: in computing, transportation, work entertainment, education and health.
