A glimpse of how our future is being created – Designer and architect Neri Oxman is leading the search for ways in which digital fabrication technologies can interact with the biological world.

The world is changing more rapidly than most people realise, the question is ‘what’ has changed that we need to know about, whilst Sage Blue has been away for the summer? This prompted a revisit to Eddie Obeng’s fast paced and thought provoking TED talk and a watch of the World After Midnight, both of which are posted here for you:
