"A Digital Tomorrow" is a design fiction video produced for Curious Rituals, a research project conducted in July-August 2012 by Nicolas Nova (The Near Future Laboratory / HEAD-Genève), Katherine Miyake, Nancy Kwon and Walton Chiu from the media design program.

This research project was about gestures, postures and digital rituals that typically emerged with the use of digital technologies (computers, mobile phones, sensors, robots, etc.): gestures such as recalibrating your smartphone doing an horizontal 8 sign with your hand, the swiping of wallet with RFID cards in public transports, etc. The aim of the project was to envision the future of gestures and rituals based on: 1. A documentation of current digital gestures, 2. The making of design fiction films that speculate about their evolution.

"Curious Rituals" was produced as part of a research residency in the Media Design Program at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
