Notes from Resonate 2015 Day 2  in Belgrade, Serbia. Nicolas Nova Near Future Laboratory Not as interested in “classic” design – post-its etc. Thinking about the future through films and props. 2001: A Space Odyssey. Picture Phone Minority Report. Gestural stuff, but also mundanity of cereal box with annoying “live” characters on them. Stephen Spielberg.
