Changing Blackboards

even though we enjoy partying and watching movies in balmy summer nights, the hours during the day are equally enjoyable… they offer the pleasure, the time and the chance to co-author next stages and facets of Turnton – a system- & climate changed city, somewhere close to an ocean in 2047….

Starting with a “manual swipe of our blackboard” in our harboursided labs….

…. followed by a summary of insights and the developments so far ….

…. continued by opening up the storyline – to start enriching the possible future scenario with characters (human & non-human), their relations, their fears and hopes, their occupations, ideologies and lots more…

…mixed with underwater video footage to observe the movement and compaction of algae formation in the harbour basin…
