Barbara Flanagan Lecture: DIRT! How a clever-if-unsellable prototype (for a food composter) led to a bout of research that led to a life-changing perspective about the stuff underfoot. Inspired by radically new soil science, product designer/writer/artist Barbara Flanagan asks if the art trades can re-design consumers' mindsets by making urgent issues--like natural processes--more visible and loveable.
