The research and design collective spurse have spent the last eleven weeks conducting crowd-sourced research at the Lab. They have diagnosed the hidden frameworks of our consumer paradigm to reveal what’s at the core of current debates about sustainability and the state of urban environments. The results of their research offer a radical challenge to our certainties concerning resource use, equality, and the future of our planet. In addition, spurse will present an audacious set of pragmatic alternatives grounded in rethinking public space, reimagining the relation between humans and non-humans, and developing tactics of the commons.
