The future of the Arctic is highly contested. How to care for its fragile ecosystems suffering from escalating climate crisis, extinction of species, and vanishing of cultures? This article discusses and contrasts two cases of design-driven technoscientific speculations on Arctic futures. The first part of the article addresses and problematizes contemporary synthetic biology, where design is understood as engineering: to protect Arctic ecosystems, the mammoth and other extinct species are to be “resurrected” with genome editing. The second part introduces an Arctic design collaboration situated in a reindeer herding culture in the Finnish Sápmi. The project aims to counter the hegemonic technocratic imaginaries, where nature is seen as inert matter for human design: alternative technoscience futures are materialized as other stories where the living relation to the land and reindeer is central.
