The exhibition includes around 140 works and objects ranging from original maps from the 16th century to contemporary works. By examining themes such as mapping and extraction, work and leisure at sea, ecology, and gender perspectives, the exhibition conveys the importance of the sea for humans across time and space.

Design Sediments

31.01–31.03.2024: Huidenclub, Rotterdam, NL

Design Sediments gathers together fourteen artists and designers who explore the contemporary dimensions of sedimentation and larger-than-human time scales.

Through this careful and attentive arrangement of works and bodies of material research, Design Sediments projects on to sedimentary pasts and futures – polychronic realities – through the possibility of a weaving entanglement of temporalities within objects.
