Possible Tomorrows Exhibition
BIOFACTION has initiated, curated and produced POSSIBLE TOMORROWS – an exhibition that took place during VIENNA DESIGN WEEK 2016.
Possible Tomorrows introduces a selection of experimental and technical design applications hatched from the fields of biotechnology and synthetic biology.
Selected designers/artists contribute on the one hand speculative applications and ideas for the future, and on the other hand already tried and tested implementations for the design and material culture of tomorrow: Cement that is composed of microorganisms. Plants that not only bear fruit, but also grow textiles from their roots. What possibilities will the future bring? Will synthetic biology be the foundation of tomorrow’s industrial design?
