Today marks the fifth anniversary of the end of the Viridian Design movement.
Viridian was the brainchild of science fiction author Bruce Sterling. It was an avant-garde movement focused on environmentalism through art, design and technology. Viridian ran from 1998 to 2008, when Bruce Sterling officially "closed" the movement.
Now, five years later, a handful of writers and thinkers are looking back at the Viridian Design movement in a retrospective called 5 Viridian Years.
Tim Maly is a writer, and the organizer of the retrospective. He dropped by the Spark studio to talk to Nora about Viridian and its legacy.
