Jenneta Petch and Szymon Kula create speculative fictions and rural fantasies inspired by pastoral sci-fi, imagining possible futures where time portals overlap and tradition and innovation cross over into absurdity. They displace deep past materialisms into a contemporary context, re-exploring their viabilities, potential adaptations and community roles beyond the local economy. In the context of environmental breakdown, they investigate the future purpose of craft practices and the potential utopias they can generate, as well as how they can aid our survival in unknown prospective ecosystems.
