the first European festival on creativity

2017 Program

Event #20

Patricia Urquiola

Rizomi

We are currently living immersed in a network of connections – both apparent and invisible – in constant expansion. We are shifting from arborescent, hierarchical and linear systems to productive connections that spread in every direction in a multidimensional manner. The Internet of Things (IOT), artificial intelligence (AI) and web robots (BOTs) are already autonomously building their own networks. As a designer, Patricia Urquiola is not only tasked with planning products or spaces, but increasingly with anticipating and preventing behaviors. As humans, our only defense against inhabiting these systems is to reinforce our social, emotional, intellectual and professional network with real rhizomes: sturdy, self-nourishing roots that enable us to overcome unfavorable situations, constantly regenerating.
