Synthetic Times

A collaborative design project that asks whether reframing how we think about the media of design can transform design practices in an era of planetary devastation.

Taking fashion and product design as points of departure (mainly because of their environmental impact), researchers engage with the proposition that what is designed in these global industries are new modalities of time. To explore this possibility, Synthetic Times will be collaborating with Het Nieuw Instituut in Rotterdam on an exhibition that examines how synthetic textiles design human and nonhuman timescales.
