You are warmly welcome to the opening of Home / Biome, MA Graduation and Spring Term exhibition, Wednesday 4th May between 4-6pm. The exhibition will be open until 8th of May and is part of this year programme for Design March.

The exhibition presents students' design projects exploring alternative ways of inhabiting real, virtual and hybrid environments. 

2022 Graduates are
Alex Grenier
Madgalena Charlotta Holst
Sylva Lam

First year students are: Viltė Adomavičiūtė, Sóley Sara Eiríksdóttir, Sophie Kraft, Jakub Nohejl, Martyna Pietrowiak and Hana Špendlíková.

Programme director is Thomas Pausz

The first years exhibit a collective research on sensing environments and living in a data driven world. The second year graduates exhibit their individual projects dealing with food waste, food growing systems, and the future of rural communities. 

The students will be present at the exhibition and host a series of workshops with the public on processes of ‘inhabiting’ the space. (program to be announced on #iua_ma_design)

The MA Design: Explorations & Translations at the Iceland University of the Arts brings together applied design and speculative design to address complex contemporary issues related to the environment and technologies.



On friday 6th May, between 4 and 6, the inhabitants of Home-Biome invite you to share their alternative visions of how to inhabit the environment, with hands on workshops and degustations and more:

Sylva Lamm invites you to enjoy a complimentary, farm-to-fork degustation menu and discuss about tackling food insecurity and climate crisis through citizen-powered urban farming. We will serve freshly grown and harvested greens. Verði þér að góðu! This event is co-hosted by vicioustudio and homegrow.

Magdalena Charlotta Holst will conduct her ´So Called Watse´ paper workshop: a workshop about a material we usually consider without value: Food Waste. In this workshop Magdalena will share her process of turning foodwaste into paper.

Alex Grenier invites you to create your own future Island with some tools he designed for his research on Grímsey.

The students will also present the collective Home-Biome publication.


Looking forward to see you!
