Speaking on a panel organised by Dezeen as part of NeueHouse Hollywood’s programming during Frieze Los Angeles, Young explained that the potential for creative expression in digital spaces was matched by the threat posed by privatisation and surveillance.

“There’s real opportunity and excitement there, but there’s also incredible danger,” said Young, a speculative architect and co-founder of think tank Tomorrows Thoughts Today and research studio Unknown Fields Division.
