News / URPFLANZE at Strange Weather

URPFLANZE features in the new exhibition at Science Gallery, Dublin - Strange Weather from 18th July to 5th October 2014

URPFLANZE focus on whether we should design plants adaptable to a rapidly changing environment and displays hypothetical macro scale designs for extreme weather conditions. The illustrations are inspired by plant morphology research from the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield.

Strange Weather brings together works by artists, designers, scientists, meteorologists and engineers to ask questions such as: Should human culture be reshaped to fit strange weather or should we reshape weather to fit our strange culture? Who is going to take advantage of climate chaos and how will strange weather benefit me? How will you choose to work, celebrate, live and die when weather gets weird?
