‘Initially borrowed from evolutionary biology, the
term ‘adaptation’ has come into widespread use
in the climate change literature. In a way, it is a
misleading term, because it implies reacting to
the consequences of climate change once it
has occurred. However, just like our efforts to
limit the warming of the worlds climate,
adaptation as far as possible has to be
anticipatory and preventative’.
(Anthony Giddens - The Politics of Climate Change, 2009)
Sustainable Indulgence
A new project commissioned for the
Whitstable Biennale 2004.
Signage detail
Serving up
Aims & Objectives:
Design & fabricate low impact structure
for producing, preserving & distributing
ice cream.
To operate a production system where
demand and supply are constantly in
balance. Economic production dictated by
nature.
(logic of local ingredients)
A social platform testing alternative
technology.
In transit
Ice innards
Staff show
Towers folley
Unforseen difficulties:
Weather (lightning!)
Ice cream wars Hearne Bay. (official
warning)
Outbreak flies
Ongoing concern - (input/output analysis)
Do the means justify the ends?
(Specifically relating to transport and high
cost)

Sustainable indulgence II
For Aichi Expo 2005, Japan.
Crossovers at Toyota Museum.
Toyota Museum
Grapes
Kitchen
Invited to do new project for Crossovers
UK.
Opportunity to modify design in terms of
weight, use and new context, (culturally
and institutionally).
Aims:
To re-design work to be as small and light
as possible to travel as sea freight to
reduce carbon footprint.
A new challenge - to operate within
gallery/museum context.
Deeper Aims:
To develop art work that acknowledges its
journey/existence after and during the
point of exhibition.
Intelligent ‘design’ - hybridisation.
(ie. Cushioning of work becomes
insulation)
Holistic outlook - Product as process.
(work is work whether exhibited or not)
