Adrian Paulsen (N) with “BUOY”

May 17, 2010

BUOY:

We continuously pollute our oceans through our daily activities. This tends to happen largely unnoticed, simply because it occurs gradually. The BUOY changes from a soft blue into a bright orange and releases internal nano paper booms (a material that absorbs just pollutants and not water) at a predetermined concentration of pollutants. The BUOY, which will be positioned in harbors, will become a symbol of awareness about the daily pollution of the oceans and help ordinary people to engage.

What does sustainability mean for me as a designer?

The challenge of maximum impact with minimum resources.

What does sustainability mean for me as a consumer?

A situation where comparing trade-offs becomes very important.

What does sustainability mean for me in general?

A reminder to reflect on how all my actions and choices have an impact on my surroundings.
