Tara’s Diary

by Parisa Ayati (IR), Mahnaz Rastgoumoghaddam (IR)
In recent decades, the Internet has become an inseparable part of daily life. It has shifted from a possibility to a necessity. Its impact on society, politics and ecology has grown so much that we can no longer neglect it. Tara's Diary is an AR book that tells the personal stories of a 29-year-old woman living in 2052. Through the illustrated book, combined with AR, the reader engages with different aspects of her daily life, influenced by a speculative evolution of the internet for that time. This project uses science fiction writing and design thinking techniques to speculate about the future internet. Staying away from mere dystopian or utopian mindsets, the book's stories span undesirable futures and potential areas for improvement.
