Stephen Mushin “Now, If, What, Then— Farming Tokyo”
This event has ended.
Melbourne-based artist Stephan Mushin presents a vision of Tokyo reconsidering the city from the ecological perspectives of energy, the food chain, and recycling. His “Tokyo” is one of the biggest cities in the world, endowed with a rich food culture, but is also a massive producer of waste. He presents images of fictional yet realizable machines that would both enliven Tokyo and help to solve these environmental problems in fantastical, fun ways. Experiencing the artworks and accompanying discussions, visitors of all ages will be encouraged to deepen their imagination and creativity and dream of a positive future.
