I love this project from (im proud to say) DIgital Eskimo Alumni Chris Gaul who has the rather impressive title of Artist in residence at UTS library (equally impressive for a university library to have an artist in residence dont you think?!)  … (via Chris Gaul: UTS Library Artist in Residence » Library Tuner)

Welcome to the Dark Mountain Project – a new cultural movement for an age of global disruption.
We are a growing global movement of writers, artists, craftspeople and workers with practical skills who have stopped believing in the stories our civilisation tells itself. We believe we are entering an age of material decline, ecological collapse and social and political uncertainty, and that our cultural responses should reflect this, rather than denying it.
We are not an ‘activist’ movement seeking new ways to ’save the world’, but neither are we interested in ‘apocalyptic’ fantasies about the future. We are simply seeking to respond, as workers with the imagination, to the reality we see unfolding around us.  We aim to question the stories that underpin our failing civilisation, to craft new ones for the age ahead and to reflect clearly and honestly on our place in the world. We call this process Uncivilisation.

The New New World

Everyday, enormous amounts of natural resources are unearthed from Australian soil. Trains like this one, loaded with iron ore, snake along the longest railway line in the world, undulating through the Australian desert. The trains arrive at the shore and unload onto ships constantly scuttling across the seas between Australia and China.

Most of these resources go towards building infrastructure and making products. But new office buildings house workers growing and innovating in new industries. Transport enables new connections and then new ideas to flower. Factories are staffed by parents buying their children an education for the jobs of the future.

From the riches of the Australian underground, China is fashioning a new world. We humbly ask you to imagine for us what it might look like.

london futures | images that bring ideas to life and frame the climate change debate in a way that everyone can understand
Tony Fry talked about his work visualising the future to help people come to terms with it at the HotHouse Symposium recently. Its an important activity that designers, futurists and eco-experts can do together and is exemplified in this work. 
If you’re interested in the role art can play in the climate movement then the exhibition on at the MCA that we’re visiting for greenups may appeal!
