“‘The invention of the ship was also the invention of the shipwreck,” said Paul Virilio, yoking together the opportunities and consequences of technological progress. Join Rory Hyde, co-curator of The Future Starts Here exhibition at the V&A in London, to discover a landscape of possibilities for the future of design. Rory discusses the background to the major exhibition, which brings together 100 objects ranging from smart appliances and satellites to artificial intelligence and internet culture.
This event is made possible by the Hugh D T Williamson Foundation through funding for MPavilion’s series of events looking at design & science.

In Collaboration With

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
