I am now spending most of my time as a Design Partner at Superflux, a studio based primarily in London, with a presence in Ahmedabad, India. At Superflux, we collaborate with a wide range of clients to research and design new interactions at the intersection of people and technology.
Through our Consultancy
we translate ideas into applications. And through the Superflux Lab
, we explore the implications of technological change on people, society and the environment.
If you want to know more or fancy a chat, drop us a line, we’d love to hear from you.
The lovely folks at AlterFutures were curious to know how I had been getting on with Ark.Inc and invited me to give a talk. I briefly presented the project premise, and went on to show where the project had lead me since, and the possible directions I have been thinking of taking it in.
I have been working to translate the work into a functional website that will in its first incarnation act as a ‘superfiction’ and visible container of its conceptual framework. The idea is to then progressively move elements of this framework into real world application. One of my main concerns has been around the ethical and legal implications of this website, as I have received concerned emails from people from all over the world, who have lived through environmental disasters and are interested in joining the Ark.Inc collective.
The discussion at AlterFutures was very useful as a sounding board for the development of the project in light of these concerns.
Dougald Hine and Paul Kingsnorth hosted a ‘talk-show’ styled evening at the Treehouse Gallery in Regent’s Park, which played host to a number of wonderful cultural activities over the summer.
Dougald and Paul invited myself and artist Rachel Horne to discuss our work and how it explored some of the cultural territory outlined in ‘Uncivilisation: The Dark Mountain Manifesto’. Atop the informal setting of the treehouse, the talk-show format worked well, as Dougald asked me questions about the nature of my work, its premise and how I intended to develop it further, followed by a lively discussion with the audience.
