World-ing, the act of imagining, shaping and visualising many worlds, is inextricably connected to the designer’s ability to work with words and language. The workshop builds on our previous RSD papers on languaging futures and the role of metaphors in exploring complex systems and presents a playful experiment using artificial intelligence programmes such as DALL-E and Midjourney. By using specific descriptive language, the participants will explore the relationship between words and visual representations and how alternative metaphorical visualisations could be used as prompts for imagining multiple and pluriversal futures within design.

Keywords: metaphors, systems language, artificial intelligence, pluriversal
