30/30 Part 8

Creative Review is 30. To celebrate we have decided, in this 10 part feature, to look forward rather than back.

We asked a range of prominent figures, including practitioners, critics, curators and academics, to tell us about one thing, person, idea or place that they were excited about for the future.

For three decades we have covered the most interesting developments in visual communications: these articles will give you some idea of the ideas, people and directions that you might find in CR in the next 30 years.

Where science meets design
Chosen by Paola Antonelli, senior curator, MOMA, New York

I am carefully watching the work of designers and architects who are collaborating with scientists to envision better ways to build and to conceive objects that are truly useful and sustain­able. Three great examples are Neri Oxman, on the faculty of the MIT Media Lab, and Daisy Ginsberg and Revital Cohen, who recently graduated from the Royal College of Art in London. Their work is endlessly inspiring, hopeful, and constructive.

Open source everything
Chosen by Joel Gethin Lewis, interaction
designer and artist

I am excited about the possibilities of applying the principles of open source software to other areas of business, culture and society. We need to be standing on each other’s shoulders rather than each other’s toes. The advent of high quality three-dimensional printers in the home and workplace will blur the edges between manufacturer, designer and consumer. Open Source Governance will usher in the creation of a multitude of states, allowing people much closer contact with the state that controls their everyday life. The application of open source principles to patent law and copyright will allow researchers worldwide to be far more effective, and true artistic expression to occur. Finally, education is already beginning to be revolu­tionised with the worldwide sharing of materials via the web – see MIT’s Open­Course­Ware project.

Being a hipster doesn’t always make you happy

Unhappy Hipsters is a tumblr blog that’s kept us highly amused for the last few days. Featuring imagery culled from various interiors magazines, it suggests that concrete floors, Eames chairs and moustaches don’t always equate with personal well-being
