This film is one of nine films produced for the project:
GARBAGE AS DESIGN MATERIAL
See the other films here: Garbage as design material
How can waste and garbage become valuable new resources for a future society? The answer could be given in the form of a mobile app for sharing and creatively re-cycling trash in a neighbour hood; a social game for families to avoid energy waste; a design kit for growing social community through waste sorting. These are just some of the design proposals that have come out of a 3 weeks collaborative project between the utility company ARWOS and Kolding School of Design.
25 design students went on a 24 hours field study trip living with a family in Aabenraa Municipality. 8 families willingly opened their homes and bin bags to the curious eyes of the design students. Their discoveries resulted in 9 short concept films and the exhibition Garbage as Design Material.
We have put the 9 films here to let you have a lively experience of the proposals we have developed to avoid waste problems and increased over-consumption.
The project and exhibition Garbage as Design Material are funded by ARWOS in collaboration with Kolding School of Design.
