PODCAST / FICTION: 'DESIGNING OUT OF RUINS' (2019)

Migration is labour. Healthy migration is labour. Migrating through collapsed infrastructures and uncertain environments? Still labour. Under the duress of climate change, when traditional infrastructures and organisational processes are obsolete, what tools are available to reestablish connection with a strange territory? How do we welcome a foreign climate, recapitulating our relationship with a land well known to us, and in a process of transition?

Ruinkraft, a migration ecology design studio leads open expeditions into futures where, in what remains of this world, regenerative practice is noble labor after international climate conflict.

In any field of labour (we are taking climate migration to be such a field) to be skilled requires orienting and training. For the multiple presents explored by a Dozen Designers Designing, Ruinkraft presents Designing Out Of Ruins – a podcast for the orienting, and a design fiction (a manual) for the training in response to speculative (oh-so-real) futures.

We acknowledge the Woiwurrung and Boonwurrung people of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the lands on which the conference is being held, as well as traditional owners of lands on which we work across the region. We recognise that sovereignty over these lands and waters has never been ceded, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and future.
