Bio-Logics: Designing with Nature
The Design Museum, London
March 06 – May 24, 2020

The award-winning design agency Faber Futures, founded by designer Natsai Audrey Chieza, presents a new display exploring how design can learn from nature to develop new materials and systems. Founded by designer Natsai Audrey Chieza, Faber Futures is a design agency working with nature, design and technology to build materials and processes from living matter.

Pioneers in the field of biodesign, their work questions how designers can collaborate with living systems to help tackle global problems such as pollution and waste. As we enter 2020, resources are depleting, yet consumption is expanding to meet the demands of a growing population. Faber Futures is investigating whether biological systems could offer more efficient, and less harmful, alternatives to industrial production.

This thinking is captured in Project Coelicolor, a project designed to minimise the use of water in textile dying by growing bacteria directly onto the textile instead of using synthetic dyes. Making bacteria the co-designer results in a chemical-free process that uses 500-times less water than usual.

For this display, Faber Futures presents design research, scientific experiments and prototypes that question whether we can achieve new processes for production that extract nature’s logic, rather than its resources. Could this radical new approach create a fairer and more sustainable future?

REN HANG, PHOTOGRAPHY

Art | October 27, 2020

Flesh, corpses, souls and bland flashlights, all composite into seconds or milliseconds of lights and shadows, projecting onto the film that never knows how to lie. Focus gathering and the shutter releasing, connecting his unpretentious, rebellious, wild and free perspectives towards the naked human body. The images look so natural, yet fun and unexpected. One soul after another all blossom like a newborn baby, urging to crawl out of his mother's womb, dying to be redefined. In this era that we live in, being censored by the Chinese government has almost become a stamp of approval for contemporary artists. Ren Hang, a young man with a mature look and tanned skin, hair as short as a Chinese soldiers', always carrying an irresistibly cute and innocent smile on his cheeks. He is, perhaps, the sole artist and photographer with the most edgy outlook towards the naked human body. Read more
