The 1014 project space has been transformed into a hyper-reality testing environment. It is populated with experiential futures prototypes that investigate our relationships in a spectrum of post-oil scenarios. Through narrative techniques and design futures methods a design studio at CUNY Citytech led by participatory futures practitioner Chris Woebken and cultural researcher Alexander Klose has developed a series of bespoke design interventions and immersive installations throughout our Upper East Side townhouse project space.Join this virtual roundtable with experts Heather Davis (Eugene Lang College, The New School), Elizabeth Henaff (NYU IDM), Timothy Furstnau (Museum Of Capitalism) and Karen Pinkus (Cornell University, Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, Ithaca), delve into these precarious scenarios, discuss and respond to new values, myths, and cultural imaginations that might emerge while being shaped by the afterlives of petro-modernity.This project is produced in collaboration between Alexander Klose, cultural researcher, Office for Precarious Concepts and Undisciplinary Research, Berlin, Germany and member of the research collective Beauty of Oil, Berlin/Vienna, and Chris Woebken, artist and participatory futures practitioner and co-founder of the Extrapolation Factory, Adjunct Assistant Prof. at CUNY City Tech and 2020 Faculty Fellow at the New School’s Urban Systems Lab, New York City, USA.Special thanks to the Urban Systems Lab at The New School for their support in developing research for the project.
