Underway Studio are a London based arts collective who work collaboratively to produce printed works. Ecotopia is a collaboration between Underway's Caitlin Parks and Melissa North and produced for an art installation.
The original project consisted of a multi-sensory installation exploring the appeal of Utopian thinking. It envisages a sustainable and better future for our planet and Society. The installation was featured in The London Design Festival 2016 and went on to showcase in Porto and Belgium design biennale.
This particular illustration takes it's inspiration from a quote by Jason Hickel, 'If we are to chart our way into a sustainable future, we will need to abandon our ontology of individualism and relearn this ontology of connection. We will need to rediscover the basic truth that our existence as individuals is bound up with the existence of others, and that our fate as a species is bound up with that of the fish, the forests, the bees, and the oceans.'
