Designing for Time - Kingston School of Art at the London Design Biennale

This exhibition features four creative research projects undertaken by members of academic staff at Kingston School of Art. These projects are unified by the notion of designing for, and with, time. Each project is linked explicitly to one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, all of which seek to enable a more sustainable future. Time is something we are growing increasingly short of as we strive to address the unfolding impacts of global ecological change. We must therefore design routes to preferable futures in which we can collectively flourish. This requires full participation of communities, facilitated by design.

Each of the four featured projects is identified with a specific target contained within its chosen Sustainable Development Goal. The 17 headline Goals attract our attention, but we often overlook the targets within them. Once we develop our sustainability literacy by looking beyond the shorthand of the familiar SDG icons, going deeper into each Goal, we will be better equipped to design for and with time.
