About

This project opens a new chapter in the Serpentine's programme, embracing radical approaches to design and developing a platform for practitioners who operate between the traditional disciplines of design, contemporary art, and research. Formafantasma's project for the Serpentine puts into question the role that design can play in translating emerging environmental awareness into informed, collaborative responses. Specifically, it will focus on forestry practices and production strategies surrounding wood and wood products. The industry's tentacular supply chain has grown out of the bioprospecting that took place throughout colonial territories during the nineteenth century, and has affected the entire biosphere.

Formafantasma's practice is characterised by experimental material investigations and detailed explorations of the history, context and implications of the transformation of natural resources into commodities. This project seeks connections with science, conservation, engineering and policymaking, adopting a pioneering multidisciplinary approach to contemporary design.
