In the literature emerging from the field of anticipation studies there are expressions of that confluence of design and futurological practices which can be caricatured as speculative. Less present is a related encounter with the notion of ‘anticipatory plagiarism’. The chapter locates this paradoxical construct in its pataphysical dimensions to compose a nomadic distribution of concepts from which one concept, productive to thinking anticipation, might be further mobilized: the Deleuzian objectile. In this chapter, the modulatory power of speculative design as a creation of anticipations is demonstrated as an atemporal anticipatory plagiarism of Alfred Jarry’s imaginary present, in which a clinamen is pleated into a compositional plane of architectural fiction and its technographic artefacts.
