The Climate Imaginary Exhibition
Melbourne Design Week
Presented by Leire Asensio Villoria & David Mah
The primary climate emergency narrative in the public imagination is defined by scientific and political discussion. Sustainability and resilience has also consumed the design world but is frequently tempered by a technical and technological emphasis.
The climate imaginary showcases a growing body of work from both local and international design professionals, researchers and students that offer us captivating visions of an imaginative commitment to addressing the climate emergency.
There is an emerging body of work emanating from the deployment of the design imaginary bridging the technological, political and cultural, offering conceptions of a visionary engagement with the climate emergency.
