Future Postcards

Joanna Wright and Melanie Carvalho

03 August 2013 - 17 August 2013

An exhibition inspired by the mission of the original community of visionaries at CAT (the Centre for Alternative Technology, Machynlleth) to create and test radical models for the future.


Please join us for the opening of Future Postcards, curated by Joanna Wright and Melanie Carvalho, at Oriel Davies, Saturday 3rd August, 3-5pm. 

There will be a short talk "Human beings and energy" by Paul Allen FRSA from the Centre of Alternative Technology, research director of the Zero Carbon Britain report, at 3.30pm.

The original community of visionaries at CAT set out to create and test radical models for the future. Inspired by their mission, Wright and Carvalho invited a group of artists to send their postcards from the future.

Joanna Wright is Zero Carbon Britain artist-in-residence at CAT, supported by Arts Council of Wales; Melanie Carvalho is an artist based in London
