This week we are privileged to be able to look back at the history and also to catch a glimpse of the future without forgetting the connection to the present. Firstly, we spend time reflecting on the Khoi and the San, the original people and tribes of South Africa and, as far as it is known, the ancestors of all humankind. Then, we visit a design agency which is mainly involved in industrial product design. We meet the designers who introduce their latest projects to us. Finally, we look at the future of communication from a communications technology perspective, and then we create a letter using cell phone technology: without using words and instead only making use of pictures of a localised environment.
