At the design conference Cumulus in Genk, we presented ‘Not quite 100′ to an international audience. The results of four projects were shown in the general exhibition, while we explained the process and the encountered challenges in a paper presentation.

Workshop on GO2030

Posted by Selina Schepers on Monday December 13th 2010 at 11:54

On Wednesday, 8th of December, we organised a workshop together with the NGO Eeland about their project Go 2030. Funded by the P&V Foundation, this project aims to present the world of 2030 through the eyes of the youth. What better way to do it than through art? The project will involve 5 cities in Limburg, and each youth group will be guided by an artist who will help them translate their story into an artwork. In the end, the 5 works will come together in a “gesamtkunstwerk”.

The purpose of the workshop on Wednesday was to define the project’s creative concept together with the partners (Z33, Stichting P&V, FLACC, Villa Basta, Media Lab, Social Spaces). We created a bunch of visual cards that related more or less to the concept of future and, after splitting them into 2 groups, we asked the participants to choose 25 cards that envision the future. Common themes were chosen between the groups, such as pollution and ecology, the importance of innovation, the diffusion of virtuality in our daily lives, the idea of the Big Brother..
