FUTURE ROBOTS︎ FILM
In collaboration with DeepMind, we imagined how technologies could be deployed in order to tackle some of the most complex and pressing issues that we face today and in the future. We looked at emerging technologies, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, and proposed how these could lead to a better and more sustainable future.
The work was showcased in The Lethaby Gallery from 17 – 22 March 2022. ︎

Each year we begin Material Futures with the Welcome Expedition, an opportunity to collectively leave the city behind and immerse ourselves in nature. However, after a year and a half of navigating a mostly digital course, this time doing so felt more important than ever.
For this year’s edition, we spent two nights on a farm in Sussex, surrounded by woodlands and apple trees, sharing stories and connecting to our surroundings. ︎
DEBUNKcollective is a London-based design duo founded by Maël Hénaff and Rachel Foley. Our aim is to promote engagement with emerging technologies and social sustainability through controversial scenarios and relatable futures. Working across design fiction, film, theater, interactive installations, and hands-on workshops, our work explores concepts of machine learning, AI, biotechnology, and the cultural implications of technocratic progress. As techno-optimists, we seek to uncover the absurdity in our increasingly complex world and design alongside communities and professionals to craft empowered futures. ︎
