The Age of. takes the audience on a journey from present day issues of climate change to a multi-planetary future. In the Age of Humans, we view ourselves separate from nature, providing us with a false sense of justification to ignorantly exploit nature.
The exhibition unfolds in The Age of Consciousness, a near future vision in pursuit of a new design landscape, where nurture nature, nature made and ecological models underpins the ethos of a conscious, symbiotic ecology.

The Age of Entanglements ask: Is it easier for us humans to imagine life on Mars than to take care of life on Earth? What if focus would shift from exploiting space, just as we have exploited Earth, by looking beyond human centered interests?

Design Performance 
The End of the World

UK-based designer Cathrine Disney is in her performance and installation questioning the colonization of Mars by connecting it to the colonial history of the cacao tree and the only insect small enough to pollinate it, the ‘biting midge’. By offering her own bodily fluids to the insect, she aims to reposition the human from domination over nature to part of it.
