About

Irene Stracuzzi (°1992, Italy) lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Irene graduated from Design and Visual Communication (BDes) at Politecnico di Torino in 2014, and from Information Design MA at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2017.

Irene Stracuzzi is an information designer exploring the theme of ‘The Geological Now’. Throughout her time with re-FORMAT Stracuzzi aims to produce not just relevant theoretical research concerning the anthropocene, but projects that effectively bridge scientific and artistic research. The phenomenon under scrutiny is the complex issue of our thawing permafrost in the Artic region. Together with Niek Speetjens—a PhD student from University of Amsterdam and Coastal Permafrost Studies, Nunataryuk—Stracuzzi will explore the objectivity of scientific research in the region, its connection with fossil fuel extraction, and how to then effectively communicate this information and its relation to the climate catastrophe.

Emblematic of the contemporary designer-researcher, Irene seeks to establish the relevance of design in the debate through visibility, accountability and understanding. In a culture of misinformation with too many vested interests to list, we need the ability to be able to collectively envision climate change as a systemic global phenomenon.

Can design(ers) provide the framework for this mobilisation?

Mentors:
