Opening: ‘Future Nature’ group show at the Australian Design Centre – Sydney

In partnership with the Australian Museum, Future Nature explores possible futures posed by artists, designers and architects inspired by biology and the natural world.

Future Nature maps the places where art, science, and design collide. Inspired by the Australian Museum’s living collection, Future Nature explores the roots of scientific curiosity, collection, and exploration – taking things apart, examining them, and reforming them anew through scientific enquiry.

Instead of displaying curious objects to inspire wonder, the process of inspiration is what’s on display – acts of creativity from 10 selected artists that use the natural world to increase our understanding of the world and our place within it.

‘Future Nature’ group show
Where: Australian Design Centre, Sydney
Opening: 27 August – 16 October

Video: Elliott ‘Numskull’ Routledge for FODI at The Opera House – Sydney

Co-Founder of The Opening Hours, artist Elliott Routledge (or Numskull as he’s been known for a long time now) has recently collaborated with The Opera House for The Festival of Dangerous Ideas in Sydney.

“The Festival of Dangerous Ideas (FODI) is an annual event that brings leading thinkers and culture creators from around the world to the Sydney Opera House stages and online to discuss and debate the important ideas of our time.

Speakers at the festival are asked to present their ideas to create lively and thought-provoking discussions. Our aim is for audiences to leave each session having experienced the excitement of ideas brought to life, and with new food for thought.”

Check out the video below of the artist in his Sydney studio.
