Technology shapes society, and vice versa. The coming wave of AI-driven automation will profoundly alter our lives—but how? At Future Perfect: A Postcapitalist Adventure, you’ll take on the role of a neighborhood council member in an imagined society, debating critical issues with your neighbors before casting your vote. What does the future hold? It’s up to you!


Free Machine develops public policy and creative projects to shape a high-tech future that is equitable, abundant, and sustainable. We aren’t the scientists tweaking the atom or the engineers coding the algorithms. We’re artists, designers, activists, and policy wonks on a mission to translate these complex concepts for the public and for policy-makers, and to help us understand how these developments can be channeled towards a more just future for all.
