Designing in Uncertainty.

A short story about water, walls and will.

We learn from the fluidity of water that crashes against rigid walls to erode, and people who teach us the will to achieve change lies in driving this project. Contradiction in shape and action. While we have a call for a new way – the old way is trodden in what seems an accelerated race driven by anxious survival. Do we lack the ideas or the power?

Decentralization

Energy reform

Authentic lives

Slowness

Finding ourselves in landscapes

 

Some ideas, almost no power – but will.

 

Thank you, Barbara, Aki and Miho
