Expeditions in Aesthetics and Sustainability
Adrienne Goehler (Ed.)
Hatje Cantz, Ostfildern, 2011
Over forty works represent the fields of art, design, architecture, and technology, and range from objects made out of recycled products, a project that matches needy Europeans with foster families in Africa or Asia, to a floating island on which fresh, potable water can be produced.
This publication draws attention to the fact that sustainability cannot make do without the arts and sciences. They teach us how to think in terms of transitions, models, projects, and provisional solutions, which lifts the boundaries between artistic and technological creativity, between feasibility and ideas.
