"Sustainability: responsibility of the designer as a creator of artifacts"

Friday, 06.10.2006, at 8 p.m. as part of the Lectures, Presentations and Exhibitions programme, press to exit project space is inviting you to the lecture Sustainability: responsibility of the designer as a creator of artifacts by Anette Lundebye – designer and theorist from London.

“In a world moving rapidly toward unrestrained materialism, what is the role of the designer? How do designers take responsibility for the aesthetic and environmental aspects as producers of artefacts?This lecture will attempt to raise awareness of the roles and impacts that design has on society. There is a real need for a shift in consciousness, as current lifestyles cannot be sustained for much longer in their current form.Using critical thinking and metadesign to challenge and create new perspectives to complex issues, we will explore how the creative potential of design may influence new ways of practice and production and become a considerable force for change”.
