For his graduation project from the MA in Design & Innovation, Maurizio Detomaso designed a device that maps the user’s exposure to air pollution:
“The concept is a wearable air quality sensor which can track your personal air pollution exposure. The aim of the project is to raise awareness about the impact the over polluted environment has on human health, and to empower people to collect and map air quality data in the urban environments. The portable device can allow people to have an accurate assessment of their daily exposure to air pollution and it can improve the London air monitoring system network at the same time. Making this “hyper-object” more tangible is the key to influencing strong political and individual actions for a cleaner and healthier environment.” Continue reading “Goldsmiths Design Festival 2017: Maurizio Detomaso investigates air pollution in London”
Student: Taegyun Lee
Project Title: Environmental Transformation Design DE-DESERTIFICATION
Taegyun Lee developed an innovation project from his own interests in eco-materials and product development. He used bio-mimicry of ancient desert plants to attempt reintroducing self watering seed propagators to allow plants to be introduced back into areas that have become deserts. Taegyun undertook extensive research into bio-materials, in particular bio-resins that convert into plant food. Partnering with a Botanist he developed a staged planting process to enable the transformation of the desert. The image shows how the heat from the sun and moisture transforming the object and protecting the young plant.
