Restless Futures

22nd September 2014

Restless Futures is a cultural melting pot of recent Central Saint Martins graduates who are shaping future design practice and was an exhibition during London Design Festival.

Curated around the theme 'Restless Futures' it is the subdivided into 4 categories: disruptive technologies, expanded boundaries, no more stuff?, and democratising innovation.

Curated by the brilliant Franklin-Till each of the sections makes the viewer question emerging technologies and their potential future consequences in our every day.

Exploring how such technologies will affect our social and economic futures, the projects offer a view of an alternative technological future whereby human participation, sustainability and the balance between man and nature finds a new equilibrium.

No More stuff considers how we can reinvent with what we already have in our lives with the work from Sophie Rowley and Cecile Rudolph who has re worked fish skins and beetroot into lace that can be eaten.

Democratising Innovation looks to how technology can be used for the common good whilst Distruptive Technologies shows the burgeoning relationship between craft and design and how emerging technologies can be a force for good or for new ways of producing depleting resources demonstrated by the work of Zuzana Gumbosovak

The final section expanded boundaries suggests a broader engagement with non traditional methods of design for instance collaborating with people outside of the design realms or utilising materials in entirely new ways to create a new dialogue of design.
