After several months of development, we are happy to open the city gates and welcome the public to explore one corner of our small city on the sea, Turnton. Emerging from a simple futuring process that used our researches about ocean health, sail cargo and socio-economic changes, the scenario imagines that we as society will not react in time to avert massive dead zones, fisheries collapse and ocean pollution. However we are not just gloomy (a comment from a visitor) in that we imagine responses to these changes on a socio economic scale in order to alleviate many of the issues, the shadows of sail cargo ships on the wall, New Neighbours are welcome.
We look forward to your visit to Turnton. Take some time to read the paper, investigate the pollinator’s balloon and the rest of the small city square, explore a possible future and think about what your preferred one might be.
All deployments described above are part of Changing Weathers, a pan-European project undertaken together with Zavod Projekt Atol (as coordinator) (SI), Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory (SI), Bioart Society Finnland (FI); Hilde Merete Methi, (NO); Stichting Sonic Acts (NL) and RIXC Center for New Media Culture (LV) – leading into a physical narrative which will be exhibited in the context of Changing Weathers.
