Beyond Speculative Design: Past - Present - Future
The book Beyond Speculative Design: Past – Present – Future
consists of six main sections. After the introduction, there is a brief
history of speculation in radically different contexts, followed by a
broad overview of speculative design practice and education. From there
we dive into speculative design approaches, methods, and tools through a
series of detailed case studies written by the practitioners
themselves. A summary of critical views on speculative practice over the
past two decades follows, and we conclude with a suggestion of future
paths and a list of guidelines (towards good practice) for both
educators and speculative designers.

Flick Flack. Pilze - Popstars der Zukunft!?
In der Popkultur haben Pilze magische Kräfte: Power-Ups bei Super Mario, Raumschiff-Antrieb im Star Trek Universum oder Baumaterial für ganze Dörfer bei den Schlümpfen. Aber steckt vielleicht noch mehr in ihnen? Können wir mit ihrer Hilfe in Zukunft sogar über uns hinauszuwachsen?

field of speculative design.
Living art in the service of science:
The new exhibition Living Canvas at STATE Studio Berlin lets a living, air-purifying artwork grow.
The STATE Studio in Berlin unites the fields of art and science - we talked to curator Johanna Wallenborn about the direction of the project and interviewed artist Fara Peluso about the new exhibition "Living Canvas".
‘Living Canvas’ by Fara Peluso at STATE Studio Berlin
A new exhibition is opening at STATE studio Berlin, Living Canvas by Fara Peluso, a berlin based designer and artist. The exhibition consists of the installation Living Canvas and the workshop Algature and it will be presented as part of Transmediale Vorspiel on Friday 25 January 2019.
Algae are our main oxygen producers on earth. They exist in nearly every ecosystem and contribute to the most fundamental biological processes on our planet. How can we as a society approach living organisms like algae beyond a mere scientific understanding but through their economic, political and creative potential? Which opportunities do algae thereby offer already today for an environmentally sustainable future? Are we ready to change our everyday conventions to face fresh and sustainable alternatives instead?
Exhibition: ‘Watery Ecologies.
Artistic Research’ at ArtLaboratory Berlin
Water and water pollution is becoming a central focus in artistic research. There is an exponentially growing number of initiatives, exhibitions and artists reflecting on the impact of human existence on the hydrosphere (the sum of the whole planet’s amount of water). Only last month Olafur Eliasson installed 20 giant panels of melting ice at the entrance of the Tate Modern in London, a provocative attempt to induce awareness of the melting the planet’s poles are experiencing due to the increase in the global temperatures.
Watery Ecologies. Artistic Research
Kat Austen | Mary Maggic | Fara Peluso
Curated by Regine Rapp and Christian de Lutz
Water is the foundation of life, making up 60% of our body. Water-born organisms produce much of the planet's oxygen. Meanwhile human activity fills waterways and oceans with plastics, industrial waste and diverse chemicals, effecting the metabolisms of most living creatures, ourselves included. This exhibition presents art projects on water, life and chemical disruption whose research transcends the boundaries between art and science. The artists pursue research in biology, chemistry and ethnography with distinct and radical DIY methods. Diverse approaches to the hydrosphere, the sum of the planet's water, explore the foundations of life and the threat of human impact on both the environment and our own bodies.
