Aeon - Senior Project
The assignment was to select a technology that could be used ten years in the future. After some research, I decided to create my project around aquaponics. The word aeon was selected for the name because it enveloped the theme of life-cycles and eternity.
Concept: Aquaponics is a technology that allows for the growth and harvesting of organic food regardless of location. Aquaponics combines aquaculture and hydroponics to create a symbiotic relationship where fish produce fertilizer for growing plants while the plants remove toxicity in the water. Aeon specializes in designing tank accessories that combine the aesthetics of a fish tank with the growing capabilities of a garden to become a beautiful display in a home setting.
