The Great Smog

Industrial Design

Global warming. Ocean acidification. Air pollution.

At a time when ecological problems are intensifying, a concept is being introduced into scientific and public discourse that unites change and ascribes it to human impact. How do various disciplines encounter the concept of the Anthropocene? Which images are emerging in the respective jargon? This work consists of a collection of Anthropocene incidents, a reflection on how to deal with new threats, and a scenario that looks into a material future.

Bee Peer Economy #propertyless

Industrial Design

By asking the question of what enables objects to be propertyless, I created the autonomous, automatic beehive “Bee Peer Economy”, which is the responsibility of and managed by the bees themselves. They sell their overproduced honey directly to customers but make no profit. They use the earnings for self-preservation and reproduction.

BETWEEN_SPACES

Conceptual Textile Design

The experimental material research is based on a theoretical analysis of the ongoing digitalisation of our society and how it impacts on our handling of textiles. This was explored by using lace as an exemplary case study through which a contemporary reinterpretation of the material could be developed.

Identikit

mage Space Object Glass

Identikit is the idea of a modular identity - the “I” in a construction set. The installation is the module and even modular. It allows access into the in-between of a touched mass. Wooden moulds used for blowing glass, opened, turned outwards and connected to form a collective body, generate the matrix of the glass form.
The surfaces of both materials testify to their touching in the process of formation. Shapes become areas, bodies become planes, approaching landscapes.

metastable

Industrial Design

A metastable design, which is based on a possible disintegration of designed things, suggests (in)capable future options as to how we could encounter Anthropocene questions at a material level. It questions the conventional division into stable and unstable structures and shows the potential in dealing with this dichotomy. It tries to counteract the accumulation of things that sooner or later stand in our way. The objects displayed disintegrate into their constituent parts by the smallest possible interventions into different connecting structures.

Pigeon Guano Company

Industrial Design

The pigeon’s image is damaged – not least because it shits a lot. One single city pigeon produces about 15 kg of excrement per year. For the Pigeon Guano Company that’s above all unused potential. Bird excrement, also known as guano, has been used as organic fertiliser for centuries. The pigeon towers of the PGC offer species-appropriate conditions in which pigeons and farmers together produce the urban fertiliser of the future. By doing so, pigeons become highly-valued members of the community again. The better the conditions for pigeons become, the better the guano they produce.

Anthropocene Souvenirs

Industrial Design

In the “Anthropocene Souvenirs” project, “natural objects” made of potassium hydroxide are
3D-printed. The potassium hydroxide is able to bind CO2 from the air. The white objects become tinted violet by an indicator after complete saturation. The transformation of these objects demonstrates that there is too much CO2 in the atmosphere and opens up a discussion about how we could react to the changes in the Anthropocene.
