1. Anette Happenings What's up : foreign investment in Hong Kong

    Oi! art center, Hong Kong, 23. January 2014

    As a member of foreign investment, Anette went to Hong Kong to present their pioneering project One Square Foot of Sky as part of the exhibition “Collector Club” curated by Ying Kwok at the art space Oi!  from 24 January – 21 April 2014. This piece forms part of a newly developed work that had its debut in London 2012. The piece poses taxing questions of the monetary, symbolic and copyright value of the sky and offers a new valuation for the skyline above Oi! With it’s reputation as one of the top investment capitals for the property market, Hong Kong is also an emerging fine art market. Beauty will embrace the beast and ‘investments of passion’ will become the future.

    London, June, 2010

    We just completed an analysis on the ‘nappy of the future’ for Seymour Powell. Looking at a range of existing international customs of nappy usage, existing products and emerging trends on new materials. Interestingly about half of the world’s children never wear nappies! The research revealed a whole lot of unsustainable facts and figures  – especially with regards to environmental impacts from waste management to water and energy inefficiencies. However the research also offered some compelling insights to opportunities for innovating new product-service systems.

    Tällberg Forum is a global think tank set up to explore the question “how on earth can we live together?” Once a year it gathers some 50o experts in sustainability from all over the world in the beautiful village of Tällberg.

    Mathilda was there learning and contributing in a session on the future of consumption – ‘The last taboo?’ The forum brought many insights and special experiences. One of the most interesting parts was the simulation of the climate negotiations to take place at the UN meeting in Copenhagen in December, 2009.

    SE-charity

    We just finished a media scan and analysis of Swedish media for a client and found a strong trend in how charities are advertising in mainstream fashion and lifestyle magazines. The visual communication is appropriating distinctly commercial features with references to famous brands such as IKEA (Save the Children) or famous fashion photographers like Richard Avedon (Stockholm’s Stadsmission). This new upsurge in charity ads make us ask whether this is due to the economical crisis; if it is responding to a higher demand for ethical consumption; or if charities are simply becoming more media savvy?

    Lundebye & Tham presented a talk and did a workshop on ‘the future of consumption through the lens of sustainability’ with the students on MA Critical Design at Goldsmiths, University of London. The students worked in groups to come up with future scenarios. We especially liked the suggestion that future consumers should be termed caretakers.
