Short description: Fracking Futures studio is conceived as an anti-thesis to shale oil drilling as a way to counteract the passage of the now human dominance over nature. In this age of the anthropocene, the focus is to create alternative communal living, develop small scale enterprises through the processing of toxic waste from various manufacturing and mining industries, cultivate sustainable living and design strategies for public engagement. Student projects employ multi-scaled intersections on the now decommissioned and dead fossil fuel site of the Caltex Oil Refinery in Kurnell, Botany Bay.
