" The designers have been challenged to contemplate diverse scenarios, all of which take place in the future energy landscape. An interplay between upcoming technologies results in an overload of possibilities, going beyond what’s familiar. "

Power Play

The age of energy is heading for a major ‘game change’.

In the coming decades, established power-sources will be replaced by alternatives that will drastically alter our way of life.

Efficiency and self-sufficiency will become the new standard as we move from the stage of consumers towards harvesters. This will simultaneously undermine the existing economic formats our society is build upon. An abundance of natural resources will ultimately reach a tipping point of overproduction. This gives rise to a range of new challenges, concepts and understandings. We redefine our relationship with energy and how it will influence our behaviour.

In Power Play, thirteen designers envision this new reality as it evolves. They provoke us with an imaginative and playful impression of an energy-overflown society.
