Alice Twemlow, ACPA, KABK

An evening program of short presentations and conversation with Alice Twemlow (Design Lector) and members of her Research Groups—Rachel Bacon (tutor in Fine Art,) Katrin Korfmann (tutor in Graphic Design,) and Niels Schrader (co-head, Graphic Design BA and Non-Linear Narrative MA)

In acknowledgement of the connection between the slow-motion processes of the earth’s systems and the ephemeral products of our disposable design culture, the KABK Design Lectorate is centered around a research project titled “Design and the Deep Future.” The project, led by Dr. Alice Twemlow, examines an array of historical, contemporary and speculative responses to design’s complicity with climate crisis, through topics such as: design and expanded timescales; radical matter; compositionism; future fossils; design and disposal; repair and adaptive re-use; digital detritus; nuclear waste; and space junk. In this evening program, Alice Twemlow will present an overview of the project and introduce and engage in conversation a selection of KABK tutors, who have participated in Research Groups, and will present their own practice-based research relating to this theme that encompasses: the relationship between mining and drawing; the relationship between waste sorting and the photographic production process; and the encroachment of digital pollution into the physical environment.
