Sustainable Sound Mats

October 23, 2014
How do we start a conversation around climate change to those younger than us? How can we educate children on our food system?
Using a screen printed place mat and Arduino technology (an open-source electronic prototyping platform) kids are able to learn about food production and transportation through sensory processing.

 

This project is a collaboration between Lauren Meyer and Sofie Storkel

A Reminder- Sculpture by Will Staub

With this piece, I sought to connect the everyday action of turning on a light to the expansive system by which electricity is generated, and bring awareness to the privilege of electricity that I feel is often taken for granted. Cut paper symbols represent steps in the process of electricity generation, starting with fuel extraction and ending in the center of the piece with the creation of light. The fragility of the paper contrasted with the industrially constructed lamp is hopeful call for change in the way electricity is generated, while the exposed illuminated bulb is difficult to look at mimicking the way in which we remain blissfully unaware, for the most part, about what goes in to turning on the lights.
