Join Co-Founder and Creative Director of Superflux, Anab Jain in conversation with Curator Annie Jael Kwan on imagining alternative worlds through speculative design.
Join us for the final event in our limited series of conversations with eminent and inspirational designers, live streamed to partner Higher Education Institutes across the UK.
@superfluxstudio is a Studio for Speculative Design and Experiential Futures. Responding to the extraordinary times we live in, Superflux was founded by Anab Jain and Jon Ardern to address urgent challenges and propose positive changes. Their practice poses alternative modes of existence, asking ‘what if?’ in the face of major issues, seeking to expand dialogues and experiences beyond the dominant human-centric frames of reference. Driven by the creativity that shapes democratic and positive futures, Superflux defies boundaries, working across installation, immersive experiences, films and research. Join the conversation diving into their inception, journey and vision for the speculative design as a world-building tool.
