Yosuke is a co-founder and designer at Takram London with an MA in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art. His primary interests are centred around visions of the future that emerging technologies promise and the political landscape around these visions. By investigating, revealing, democratising and exploiting these techno-political systems, systems that are usually invisible or inaccessible to the general public, he aims to facilitate a better understanding of their possibilities and encourage discussions into future directions that we could take.
