“Act, like we have just enough time. Live, like it runs out today”
Globally we already consume 30% more resources each year than our planet can replenish. If everyone consumed at European rates we would need three planets, and if everyone consumed at American rates we would need five. We know this can’t continue which is why we have to ask ourselves, what can we do now to safeguard our future survival?
Together we can start to make sense of what climate change means to us…
Working to a design brief devised with Helen Storey Foundation, students from MA Sustainable Design at Kingston University will be running an open pop-up studio and exhibition to visualise what sustainability in the face of climate change looks like, and to test ways of recording the public responses to the issues we face around climate and sustainability. The techniques trialled at the open studio will then feed into Helen Storey’s wider project, raising awareness of climate change issues.
Helen Storey Foundation is a London based project funded not for profit arts organisation, inspiring new ways of thinking across art, science, design and technology. It is led by award-winning social artist and designer, Helen Storey MBE RDI.
MA Sustainable Design at Kingston University is run by Dr Paul Micklethwaite. The course focuses on the value of design as a vehicle for addressing social and ecological concerns in both developed and developing world settings.
This event is organised in collaboration with Dr Robert Knifton from the Research Department of Kingston University’s Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture. Over the past year, Robert has been working closely with Helen Storey Foundation, establishing digital design archives related to HSF’s practice.
This event is free, drop in (no booking required).
This event is part of Inside Out Festival 2015
Robert Knifton was awarded a Creativeworks London Researcher-in Residence award in round 3 to take up residency at Helen Storey Foundtaion.
