We are very pleased to welcome Sinead Evans to the Something or Other series on ‘Uncertainty’ on Wednesday 26 April, 5.30-6.30pm, Lecture Theatre B.
Design Practice is a Terraforming Tool: how critical discussion can shape the what, why and how we make.
Not seeing anything intelligible is the new normal
Hito Steyerl, 2016.
We are teetering on the precipice of apocalypse – or so it seems when scanning the headlines every morning. There is a fractured chasm between us and the few people in the world who hold economic, environmental and political power – and yet the wealth of images narrating global events push our faces up against the glass of the screen and we have never felt closer.
How do we build an approach to practice in what feels to be an ever precarious global situation?
First looking at the discipline of illustration and finding it wanting, this talk will discuss the political motivations for the production of Limner Journal. Sinead will then present her own research projects exploring the visual vocabulary of the Anthropocene, our changing relationship to nature and the importance of critical reinterpretation of local landscape in pursuit of ecological citizenship.
