Camille Bissuel (NYLNOOK)
La Roche-des-Arnauds, France
We enjoyed Camille’s ‘SolarPunk’ style illustration in particular. The environmental movement lacks inspiring visual hieroglyphs that point to brighter futures. In addition, technology is usually absent from the visual language of environmental campaigns, with the exception of tired imagery of things like wind farms and solar panels. While our societies urgently need to transform our relationship with technology, and move beyond technophoria and tech-fix that are so central to late capitalism, new technologies, and more democratic relationships to them should feature in our shared visions of change. We loved the hint of this in the geodesic domes Camille drew, an image of seamless symbiosis between human design and technology and the ‘more than human’.
