UN-MINING

Workshop

School

Location:

Design Campus Dresden

Lab Air addresses aerial issues and explores the systematic impacts of our daily choices. Questions such as Where does material come from?” and How far did it travel?” are central to this exploration, along with considerations of air-pollution emissions.

For this vanitas the fine dust footprint’ is calculated together with DCMR of daily choices on our plate. The outcomes equals the amount of air pollution that a person breaths in 10 years in Rotterdam, 1 gram. It is the same amount of air pollution from a car that one person in Rotterdam is driving on an average base in only 5 days. The dust that we breath also comes for example from air pollution produced by shipping our products world wide. This 1 gram is the same emission as transporting 7 items (with the size of a tea cup) by a container ship from China to Rotterdam. Smogware, photo: Roel van Tour

EXTRAORDINARY VISIONS

Workshop

School

Location:

Design Campus Dresden

Imagine Hubertusburg Castle and its surrounding landscape as a realm that mystifies and entices us to uncover its historical layers and potential futures. How do we awaken memories ingrained in this place and collectively dissect its agricultural, social, and ecological dimensions to weave fresh narratives? What stories of harmonious coexistence can emerge, bridging the varied interests of local communities and production practices? And how can food serve as a conduit between people and place, even in fleeting encounters?

TERRIFIC VIEWS

Workshop

School

Location:

Design Campus Dresden

Summer is a season of abundance and harvest, but it also brings heat and scarcity. Our landscapes have been shaped by human demands, requiring vast resources and space, which affects other species and entire ecosystems. Terrific” reflects this duality — what is beneficial for some can be detrimental to others.

CULTIVATING GRATITUDE

Workshop

Cultivating Gratitude is a research-based workshop that invites participants to explore and redesign the relationship between humans and other species through the lens of harvest rituals. Participants are encouraged to conceive and produce objects and tools that celebrate and honor the interdependence between humans, animals, and the land. Using raw materials, both wild and cultivated, gathered from around Hubertusburg Castle, participants will explore different techniques to create meaningful design pieces.
