What South Devon College aim to bring/offer to the event incubator/accelerator: 

Technology has become the most important and fundamental driving force behind the progress of human civilisation. 

However, this phenomenon is a paradox! 

Technological innovations are designed to continuously improve the quality of our existence. They simultaneously disturb the dynamics of our interaction and lead to the destruction and poisoning of our habitat – a blue planet called the Earth. 

Our UAL Foundation Diploma in Art students have engaged in an exciting project, which questions the following lines of intellectual enquiry: 

  • Uncontrollable growth of plastics in the sea and sustainable ways of disposal. 

  • Is sustainability feasible in a technologically unsustainable world? 

  • Is it possible to live in your own “bubble” and alienate technology? 

  • Rejection of reality and a total relocation to a virtual world.

What South Devon College hope to get from the event: 

We are eager to make a valuable contribution to the process of collaboration with our partners.  Simultaneously, the participating Foundation Diploma in Art students are searching for additional stimulus and inspiration to develop their projects further through exchange of ideas and alternatives.Ultimately, we would like to communicate the seriousness of the consequences of technological advances and their impact on reshaping the future of our civilisation.
