The ‘Life in 2150’ workshop, led by artists Camille Benbournane and Fang Dong, will take place from January 10 to May 13, 2023, and is open to design and art students. Focused on recycling and the revaluation of waste, the workshop will take participants to the beaches to observe the surroundings, collect materials, and create clothing, costumes, objects, or sculptures.

The science fiction narrative conceived by the artists will serve as a foundation for tackling serious issues such as pollution, global warming, and rising sea levels. The workshop is inspired by committed authors, designers, artists, and stylists. The objective is to deepen reflection on the use of materials in art and design by exploring the fields of biomaterials and biomimicry, both physical and digital.
