Imagine a world where cows float above the earth, kept aloft by the methane gas they produce, or where we farm polar bears in a special icy environment, for their skins and meat, to keep the species alive once the arctic had melted.

These and other brilliant concepts to address the sustainability of the planet are the ideas of Stephen Mushin – artist, designer and creative imaginer – whose exquisite drawings, showing a range of ideas that are all theoretically possible to save the planet, are presented in an exhibition Now If What Then at the new Grace Cossington Smith Gallery at Wahroonga. You can listen to Stephen and also Mary Faith, Director of the Grace Cossington Smith Gallery, speaking about the exhibition on Arts Thursday, 12 February with Maisy Stapleton.
