THE FUTURE PEOPLE is the collaborative creative practice of the husband and wife team, Cameron and Rachael Van Dyke. Their common interests in design, architecture, entrepreneurship, education, fine art, theater, and community are the foundation of their collaboration. They integrate their practice into daily lifestyle choices in order to explore and test alternative solutions related to housing, transportation, and community.
Individually each of them has their own art and design practice. Cameron opened a studio in 1996 and designs and fabricates both self-generated and commissioned furniture and public objects. Cameron is currently an Assistant Professor of Industrial Design at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. Rachael is an art educator and painter with gallery representation in Michigan, North Carolina, and Ohio. More information on their individual pursuits can be found in the links below.
