In attempting to shift away from the human-centred perspective of design, we ask ourselves what a more-than-human design practice might look like, and how we might create opportunities for this to occur. Working as a collective, our perspective underwent a necessary and ongoing shift from “me and the other” to “we” as a singular entity.
      Our collective is formed through conversations; the sharing of knowledge, the building of relationship. Together we work to move from a known and regulated future - that of products and prototypes - to an exploration of the unknown.
      Het Collectief does not hold much interest in the making of sculptures, systems, or object solutions, but rather focuses on the creation of avatars of fiction, improbable artefacts of reflection, and empathy. Our process is both an intentional and playful act of discovering the potential of more-than-human agents to explore new narratives for potential futures.
