an exhibition curated and produced by Biofaction during Vienna Design Week

Possible Tomorrows introduces a selection of experimental and technical design applications hatched from the fields of biotechnology and synthetic biology.

Selected designers/artists contribute speculative applications and ideas for the future, as well as already tested implementations for the design and material culture of tomorrow: Cement reinforced by microorganisms, photosynthetic hybrid textiles, photography with biological media, etc.

What possibilities will the future bring? Will synthetic biology be the foundation of tomorrow’s industrial design?

Biolace / Carole Collet
bioMASON – built with nature / Orkan Telhan & Taylor Caputo
Oscillatoria Sutured / Dr Simon Park and Victoria Geaney
The Growing Lab – Mycelia / Maurizio Montalti
