Katja Aglert: From The Top Of A Steep Hill

For many years Aglert has investigated the effects of light pollution. How does it influence us, as individuals and as a species, and how does it influence other species?
Aglert’s work has taken her to places such as New York, Bangkok and the Arctic and this new video piece is composed of extracts from her growing archive. Her work focuses on physiognomy, existential questions as well as the role of the human race in relation to other species on Earth. What are the consequences of our seemingly unlimited need of light?

Antonio Scarponi: Malthus
Scarponi is an architect, designer and founder of Conceptual Devices, a think tank that considers design to be a form of social engagement. Scarponi’s latest work dwells on the fact that the world population has doubled ever 30 years for the last 200 years.
It is a module that combines the growth of salad and fish in a sustainable system – and it fits in your kitchen. Malthus is presented together with a manual for how to build the unit with cheap materials from builders merchants and IKEA.

The New Beauty Council (NBC): Forest Food For Thought
NBC is a collaborative initiative with artists, architects, curators and researchers. NBC often stages ideas of what a city could be; what it can be used for and how to try out new visions.
At Power Landscapes NBC explore suggestive wishful thinking as a strategy for change by initiating a platform to create an urban forest garden on the grounds of the Stockholm University called Forest Food For Thought.
