Sustainability in an Imaginary World

Welcome to Sustainability in an Imaginary World, a research project attempting to integrate scenario analysis and the arts as a means of exploring less obvious layers of sustainability. The project ran for three years thanks to a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and involved two mountings of a fully immersive and interactive installation, along with extensive participant interviews and an online version of the experiences. The project led to abundant conversation on diverse themes: deepening scenario engagement experiences; ‘using’ art or the aesthetic dimension in intentional, prescriptive ways; structuring interdisciplinary research projects; structuring interdisciplinary art projects; incorporating digital interactivity into linear experiences; and, perhaps most importantly, the very nature of sustainability itself.
