Lauren Beukes is an award-winning author from South Africa whose book Shining Girls has recently been adapted for television. Some of her work is kind of sci-fi, some of it is kind of horror, some of it is kind of magical realism, and all of it is great.
Lauren previously spoke at dConstruct in 2012, when she gave a talk called Imagined Futures.
Lauren spoke at the final dConstruct, a special one-off anniversary edition held in 2022. The theme of the day was design transformation.
