  • Water dwellers: Karina, Bonsu, Indigo, Karolina, Lara, Leonard – looking at how different societies adapt to live on or near water, and the impact of climate change and gentrification.
  • Virtual mediators: Beatriz, Eloise, Esme, Jaq, Rebecca – exploring how we react to a place we can’t visit in person, articulating how the online experience is constructed with reference to the ‘real’ thing.
  • Architects and artists: Amy, Freya, Harriet, Mi Park, Sanni, Sara, Zoë – asking how risky can creative makers and designers be, and how can they offer solutions and alternatives to what the market dictates.
