Awareness brings change. Art has surprising ways to amplify awareness. Being enchanted by non-human forms can be an exercise of "listening" to new ways to co-inhabit this globe. Hope to find more creative force in nature and in human connections like these to work for an ecological future.

We need to make an effort to deeply connect with the necessities of our world and our environment. We will have to change ourselves, to open space for the new, to be less selfish and help people in need. Art is such a powerful tool to help us be more conscious.

Among the keys to approaching the Resource Hungry theme is a genuine awareness of the interconnectivity of species and elements alike paired with a thorough exploration of the natural processes of growth and evolution the respect of which will necessarily lead to a responsible cohabitation."

We are designers, yet our main aim is to expand and stretch the borders of design. We protest, we work on past and present, we are political, and we believe design is not about form or function, but a way of understanding and thinking our current context, now more than ever.

"There are two underlying roles every organization and person should consider adopting: saving and then protecting the planet; and unlocking the power of every individual on earth (including eliminating all the social injustices and barriers to equality for all people). Resource hungry addresses the first. The second is at least as important."
