Creating an artefact from the future can make an abstract future more tangible and visceral. Design fiction allows us to explore and critique the present and future by challenging our assumptions, shifting our perspective, and provoking conversations.

The following artefacts are invoices issued by the fictional “United Nations Office of Reparations”. They prompt reflection on the decolonisation of the aid sector and the redirection of resources through reparations to mitigate future crises and curb current challenges.
