Design a future financial crime
Whether we like it or not, crime is a driving force behind a large proportion of technological ‘progress’; this is especially true regarding money. In 1817, a burglary at a British dockyard led the government to start a competition challenging locksmiths to invent an unpickable lock. The result was the Chubb detector lock, and it remained ‘unpicked’ for 33 years.The competition invite creative practitioners to imagine and design a future monetary based crime. A crime which utilises a loophole, a social convention or specific technology.
The competition will run in two phases.
