New website under construction using a low-tech approach (low-tech, high futures)
I'm a designer and director with 5 years of experience co-running a design agency and doing research on design, ethics and, more recently, climate change. I give regular talks within Europe on the previous topics with a focus on energy consumption and sustainability of digital industry.
I think of designing as an act of negotiating collective daily life, whether present or future. We, designers, generally say that the negotiation should lead to maintain or improve common well-being. But what does well-being mean in a damaged world where basic human needs are durably endangered by human activities? Which daily life should we learn to imagine and negotiate in a world with limited resources and energy, for whom and with whom?
My practice-based research studies design vectors that could shift from a world considered, mostly by Westerners, without limits to an Earth with limits (energy, resources, ecological thresholds).
I work on the field, doing interviews, in-depth research, enabling meaningful collaborations and translating the research back into understandable and sensible outcomes (films, objects, talks). I also create and conduct workshops to allow anybody to imagine future dailylife (services, products, craft) in a world with limited resources and energy. I also provide content creation in filmmaking, motion graphics, digital media to answer communication needs based on a low-tech approach. I also enjoy teaching to the current and next generation of designers.
My pratice is based on the following principles:
