We Are a Counterforce by Prof. Rebeca Méndez
About this video
We live in an era of radical unbalance, when humans have moved the planet outside its natural limits and where the environment has surfaced as an existential crisis for all of us. Rebeca talk focuses on how art and design can help us leap into envisioning more equitable and sustainable relationships with others and our planet. Rebeca presents recent projects and introduces her UCLA initiative—the Counter Force Lab, a research and fieldwork studio dedicated to using design and art to develop creative collaborations, new fields of study and methods to research, create and execute projects around the social and ecological impacts of anthropocene climate change.
