A pioneer in design projects that explore interactions between machines and natural ecologies, Stephen Mushin has spent the last 15 years working as a designer on real- world technology projects, and as an artist working on narrative projects that explore sustainable futures.

His current project, Now If What Then, is a touring exhibition of design drawings and 3D printed models for unorthodox, but theoretically possible plans to redesign the world. An inventive and original thinker, the Australian Design Centre believes Mushin’s work is not only visually and intellectually captivating, but also a critical voice in the reimagining of outdated living practices.
