DDW21 | The Greater Number Sessions #3: It’s in our Nature

DDW21 | The Greater Number Sessions #3: It’s in our Nature

11.00 - 12.00 @ MU

It's in our Nature is about rediscovering how we can be one with nature. What’s it like to design and collaborate using living organisms? How do we establish an ethical and balanced collaboration, and what skills do we need in order to achieve that?

Since prehistoric times, humankind has worked with nature; we grow our food, build our houses, extract materials for our products and energy. Over the centuries, we humans have come to increasingly control and dominate nature. Treating her as a factory that can be managed, adjusted, and conditioned to our needs. Can we design to be one with nature again?

Now the world is more and more in need of sustainable alternatives, designers turn to scientist and the industry for expertise and guidance. Together they work on bio-based alternatives and enhancing natural processes to recover disturbances in nature. 

Where: MU Hybrid Art House | When: Friday 22 October | Time: 11.00 – 12.00 | Language: English | Entrance: free | No need for a DDW-ticket
