Wendy Plomp, founder and curator of Dutch Invertuals was interviewed during the Milan Design Week 2018 by Tracy Metz for the project Human Nature - designing the equilibrium.
Humans play with nature’s materials – now nature is playing with human material, as we enter the Anthropocene era, a new geological age. Mutant Matter, the 18th exhibition presented by Dutch Invertuals at Milan Design Week 2018, this year cocurated with FranklinTill, explores our current and future relationship with materials and making.
How do we ensure balance between humans and nature? What instruments do we have at our disposal and how does this reflect on a future that we can look forward to with more awareness and greater sensitivity? Under the title Human Nature - designing the equilibrium, eleven designers and brands answer questions about a future in which Humankind and Nature enter into a new relationship.
