Communication Design IV Project

With the “Whole Earth Catalog” (WEC) as the starting point, the publication ‘Continuum’ aims to synthesise the ideas of connectivity and technology according to its roots in the 1960s counterculture.‘Continuum’ explores three sub-themes — the relation between nature and technology in the context of the WEC and the counterculture; the WEC as a network model; a reflection on how the cyberculture may develop in the future — illustrating each section with images of objects originating in the interactive platform of the exhibition “Design and the Elastic Mind” (curatorship by Paola Antonelli) which explore the relation between science and design in modern times.
