DETAILS

In this talk, Sam will walk through ‘Reverse Archaeology’, a project conducted for his Honours research in 2019. The aims of this project were two-fold: exploring the notion of ‘re-anticipation’ and the role of product design skills and knowledge within emerging speculative practice.

Reverse archaeology is the practice of designing objects from the future. Diegetic prototypes were developed from co-created speculations into the future of lab-grown meat technology, exploring the potential implications on food production and consumption practices.

This talk will discuss and reflect upon the research methodologies and design approaches behind the speculative process.

This is an online event, the zoom link will be activated in the Online Event page on the day.
