SPACES 2050: Seeing and Seers by Tine Bech Studio

Embark on a quest and re imagine our future, learning and research spaces
Send illuminating messages back in time

SPACE 2050 is a unique interactive event where participants are sent to the year 2050 to become masters of illumination, in order to create a glowing legacy about our future education spaces.

In Seeing and Seers (premiering 28th January 2016) participants are the future learners and researchers whose mission it is to record and share their knowledge of power to help the people of 2015 to re imagine space and place.

Tine’s Creativeworks London Creative Entrepreneur-in-Residence project will conclude with Seeing and Seers an innovative event created and inspired by Cass Business School, City University London. Tine has spent time in the business school both physically, and in engagement with faculty and students. As a result, she has decided to build the theme of her event around space and knowledge, a crucial issue for the school in the light of its strategy looking for significant improvements in its physical estate.

Her aim is to turn Bunhill Row for one evening into a place where the future of 21st Century knowledge spaces can be reviewed and re-imagined. Tine is an artist who often works with light, and participants will be provided with her unique wearable lighting. They will not simply be passive observers, but will actively participate and engage, creating new artifacts which can be shared with others digitally. Please note that the Seeing and Seers event on the 28th January is only open to City University CASS staff and students.
