of our Industrial Design students at the University of Wuppertal — Piet Becker, Alexander Görts, David Hrlic, David von Netzer and Christopher J. Weld — designed a fictional, dystopian future society in which courtrooms and parliaments have been replaced by computers. They created a silent film, aicracy, featuring a series of everyday objects from this society, and portrayed the lives of two of its citizens: a productive one and a lazy one.
