Nature Salons | Materials of the Anthropocene

Join us for a discussion exploring the ways in which designers consider the abundance of materials available to them in the 21st century. From the unpredictability of live animals to the natural decay biomaterials, these designers employ vast scopes of the natural world in an increasingly man-made planet and contemplate the role of synthetic materials in the changing landscape of a warming earth.

Panelists:

Shahar Livne, Conceptual material designer

Charlotte McCurdy, Interdisciplinary designer and researcher

The conversation will be moderated by Caitlin Condell, Associate Curator and Head of Drawings, Prints & Graphic Design.
