Our Project explores current human use and abuse of the material world. We propose that if we develop our relationship with matter, with materials, so that they become closer to us, become us and are seen as a part of us, then we will care for, and feel responsible for, their journey in and through the biosphere. Our shared investigation seeks ways to encourage the development of such close and caring relationships with the material world through the sensory, the experiential and consideration of the implications of such relationships in the ways we act in the world.

We look forward to seeing you!
