Shaun Wilson | Failed Design Experiments of Climate Change Denial Machines

15 – 25 March

Part of Melbourne Design Week

 

 

The exhibition features a series of miniatures that explore the notion of climate change and steampunk mechanical design. Built partially into resin blocks these imagined machines created by Shaun Wilson, were designed to combat the scientific fact of climate change. Each machine represents a failed design concept measured against its own engagement of design thinking because these machines eventually broke down and stopped working due to rising sea levels and eco-devastation. No one was left to switch them off.
