Artists Angela Brennan, Chris Bond, Jon Campbell, Kate Daw, Katherine Hattam, Siri Hayes, Martin King, Gabrielle de Vietri & Will Foster, Thornton Walker, Miles Howard-Wilks have created posters that speak from the heart.

Posters will be displayed in an exhibition at the

ART & DESIGN (USA): ART MUSEUMS SEEK A GREEN PALETTE
By DAVID GELLES
MARCH 15, 2016


As new institutions sprout up around America, administrators and architects are incorporating environmentally friendly design features.

“At its very fundamental core, this is a project about sustainability,” Mr. Rinder said. “At a philosophical level, it was about the sustainability of our institution — we were in a seismologically unsound building and had to move to preserve our collection and our audience and our programming.”

PROJECTS (UK): ENERGY RENAISSANCE 
'Energy Renaissance' invites visitors to virtually interact with the physical environment of The Strand – the busy area surrounding Somerset House. Through the use of behavioural, scientific and technological changes, individuals will be able to de-carbonise their city into a greener, more peaceful neighbourhood.

This project draws on gaming, immersive theatre, and stunning graphics to create a visceral experience that has been inspired and informed by present day reality. 

Cape Farewell, Shrinking Space, and studio Hammerhead VR, have teamed up with the Environmental Research Group at King’s College London, to create an immersive Virtual Reality experience for the year-long Utopia festival at Somerset House in October 2016.

'Energy Renaissance' is part of Utopia 2016: A Year of Imagination and Possibility. Find out more here
