Alastair IlesUsing a "public ethics" framework, we explored the practical challenges and ethical conundrums of redesigning materials and products to make them safer and more sustainable in our very complex modern industrial system.
Lochlann JainThinking at the interface between things as objects and things as assemblages, I play with notions of common sense categories by offering a new way to explore how we author the categories we live by, and by inviting readers/observers into that process of authorship through a series of postcard sized drawings.
