Design Investigations: After Abundance
(1000 items available)
The speculative narrative After Abundance imagines an Alpine society altered by climate change, in which human ingenuity and solidarity are the keys to survival. The work shows how local communities confront these new challenges with traditions and technologies using craft skills and resourcefulness so that they can continue to develop and survive in their altered surroundings.This encounter with experiments, legal devices, protests and performances invites readers to empathise with the lives of people in a possible future.The Austrian contribution to the 2nd London Design Biennale also gives insight into the work of Studio Design Investigations under the direction of Anab Jain, University of Applied Arts Vienna.
