Why discussing an artist's work? I have worked for 15 years in the field of contemporary art. This experience benefits the way Mycelium Foresight Studio and I practice strategic foresight. I believe that art, in its various forms, has a real relevance for the theory and practice of foresight.
Art is a mean to catalyze future change. Artists and designers solve problems, develop visions through the constant movement between analysis, deduction and making. They build on existing practices, they break down forms and reconfigure them; they investigate new technologies and new materials. They build models and prototypes. They make powerful ideas tangible. Art requires the ability to think critically, to ask questions, to act and to make decisions.
Art is unsettling too - it engages in sensory experience, emotion, motivation, play, the rational and the irrational, the uncomfortable, the uncanny and the impressive. These diverse perspectives nourish Mycelium Foresight Studio's philosophy. The companionship with artists becomes a method of exploring possible realities, and strengthened by the methodologies of foresight, Mycelium Foresight Studio allows you to navigate complexity, to make sense of complexity.
Mycelium Foresight Studio is committed to involving artists in its work to stimulate perspectives and results.
