A practise-based material research experience
In shaping the future, design should also be involved in the discussion alongside science, politics and natural science, because the greatest gain in knowledge lies in interdisciplinary teams. In design and art, we can develop new methods of research that focus more on searching instead of proving a thesis. In the process, perhaps even more is found than is searched for and several answers can emerge. In this way, visions and positions can emerge that lead to or contribute to a public discourse. The new materials are plant-based and lokal and will create new forms of crafts and asthetics.
