Futuro: Slivers of the Future
We are keen that the extraordinary setting of the Futuro House is used in the spirit of the project that the artist Craig Barnes has initiated. We see the loan of the Futuro House to CSM as an opportunity for the college community to gather slivers of what the future might hold. We are suggesting a simple protocol for use of Futuro, in order to nudge any use so that in some way it has a futural orientation. We want any gathering within to take full advantage of the nourishment the Futuro House can offer. – Jeremy Till, Head of College, Central Saint Martins.
