Crafting Sustainability

craftingsustainabilityweb5

A collaboration in Photography and Communication Design

on-going project with photographer Katherine Needles

Drawing the viewer in closely using intimate forms of sound and analogue photography, we tell the stories of the craftsman within the sustainable food movement. Informal conversations are played alongside a collection of slides as an alternative documentation to  magnify the essence of those who are revolutionizing the way we eat.

Showcased at "Surprise & Serendipity" research event organised by University of the Arts students 23 April 2015 at Apiary Studios

Mapping Meaning

Mapping MeaningShowcases work in progress of research project "Communication Design for Sustainability" Exhibited at Spotlight2015 Exhibition, Central Saint Martins, London, March 2015

The communication design research is practice-oriented and in collaboration with a selection of sustainable food initiatives - an example of a thriving sector for social innovation. The aim is to extract from these a set of practices that reveal how sustainability “values” and “qualities” are expressed through communication design approaches. Communication design is interpreted as an expanded practice of message, form, interaction and experience, essential in leveraging social change towards more sustainable ways of living. Presented here is a fragment of the ongoing research. Extracting meaning from informal conversations with sustainable food initiatives, to map what are sustainability qualities and values.
