(re)programming | Ep. #4: Interdependence [w/ Anab Jain]
Future is not only about data and trends, it is about imagination. The work of designer and filmmaker Anab Jain transports people into the future. The evolving installation Mitigation of Shock by her studio Superflux envisions a random apartment in the London of 2050 or in a Singapore that has become a flooded city in 2219. In this conversation, Jain gives the listeners an emotional vade mecum to imagine and possibly shape the future, starting with equipping themselves with many options and possibilities in order to explore those prospects and interconnections, then asking which decisions that we are taking today may affect them in the future. As indicated in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, there is an urgency to reassess our relationship with what we call “nature” – we have to think of ourselves as one species among others, who are our companions.
