In 2010 I collaborated with 51% studios on an entry into a com­pe­ti­tion, A Room for London. The brief was to design a tem­po­rary 'hotel' room on the roof of the Queen Eliz­a­beth Hall at the South Bank. Although our entry was rejected, I enjoyed the process and especially their blackboard traces. See more of the drawings.

InsatiableChelsea College of Art & Design, London Friday 19 October 2012

As part of Critical Practice I helped facilitate Insatiable a symposium to critically examine the conflicted idea of sustainable growth and to envision alternatives.

Insatiable is an exchange between Art, Economics and Ecology. Each of the fields is contested and constantly changing, and the relationships between them are ambiguous and paradoxical. While the symposium offers a critical focus on ‘sustainable growth’, we aim to move beyond critique towards guidelines for creative action.

As a global centre for contemporary art and finance, London is a unique context in which to consider the conflicted idea of ‘sustainable growth’. Decades of constant economic expansion have overwritten considerations of ecological sustainability, even human survival.
