resilients:start [the libarynth]

We transform the concept of resilience into concrete practice by designing experimental social structures and situations and stress-testing them in real-life labs – our case studies in possible futures. Control of the Commons explores the culture of water use by travelling on vessels constructed from recycled and locally sourced materials. Augmented Urban Gardens are experimental grounds for cultivation of plants (and their ecosystems), on a fertile bed of arts and technology.The Pollinators re-imagine pilgrimage as an itinerant artistic laboratory, connecting people and places they travel through.
