We are headed towards a future where the majority of people will live in giant cities. Where humans have urbanized more than half of the earth’s surface and much of the rest is covered in farms and fields to feed those cities. Humans have colonized plant and animal habitats to expand their own; rearranging the earth’s biodiversity in drastic ways. Influencing the earth’s climate, species, and surface structure. As we move through this anthroposcenic era, how will plants and animals adapt? Drawing inspiration from climate change, invasive species, mythology and more, to feed our fiction of future evolution and to imagine how our relationship

to these creatures will evolve.

 

We are a group of students on the border between art and design. Before entering our final year, we have been working up to this exhibition with interests in creatures and the environment. Using science fiction and design history studies as tools to develop ideas, we have developed a keen interest in environmental speculative design and how art and design can communicate these topics to a wide audience.
