Micronations Revolution

Posted by Alex Bec,

Micronations Revolution is the moniker of an incredibly ambitious event directed, curated and written by the excellent Nelly Ben Hayoun. Last month’s two-day event included a series of interactive, participative experiences and experiments questioning the use of Design with imaginary politics. Don’t let the complex concept put you off, especially when a wit and drive like Nelly’s is involved. We’ve got a lovely visual summary here and in Nelly’s own words, “Participants experienced imaginary societies while communicating with a yeti on the top of an ice cube.” My favourite piece has to be this, the beautiful Marble Kingdom.
