Hint Prints: Sustainability from a Design Perspective

Abstract [en]

The topic for my thesis is sustainable design in the light of critical design. The only simple thing about sustainability is to pronounce it, which is one of the vital results that this project displays. Wearing my critical goggles while digging into the discourse of sustainable design I saw the many factors that play a role in this complex system of networks. Creating reflections rather than fulfilling a new commercial need, posed as a spotlight on the whole design process and also on the context to appreciate this. My artifact is an attempt to visualize the complexity around sustainable development and by pointing out the importance of having a holistic approach to this; my aim is to encourage a new way of looking at products. Seeing them from their entire life, from birth to death, and metaphorically speaking how we, the human species, keep on affecting a products ecological footprint all through its time here on earth. The mediator of my message is a game and by apostrophizing a part of the complexity, my aim is to reach routine-like actions and aknowledging by letting the visitors play an active part in the exhibition, since active actions lead to consciousness.
