Karolina will talk about how the concept of “carbon” is shifting today, coalescing a new carbon-conscious culture. She will discuss the fieldwork conducted in Shanghai through engagements with researchers, engineers, scholars, students and designers, which examines the agency of carbon in its new designations as a rhetoric, a new resource, and as material with new capacities.
