This was a conference poster for the Doors of perception conference. The ideas and talks for this conference relate to book In the Bubble by John Thackara. This book has ten different chapters with themes such as speed, lightness and locality . In each of the chapters design and technology is talked about in terms of the excess that we are creating. This overall theme is related to the themes of each chapters. The book makes you think about the roll that technology has played in the past and present as well as how we can still create innovate design without adding to the wastebasket, whose contents will eventually make its way to the landfills throughout the world.
The setting for my conference is Seoul, Korean which is why I chose to photography the popular Korean dish bim bim bap and chopsticks, but I also feel that this dish is a great self-contained one pot meal. This meal comes with protein, grains, and a variety vegetables, its very filling and satisfying. This is exactly how we should think about creating technology. Instead of having a piece of technology that gets an excessive amount of add-ons that will generate more waste in the long run with all of the excess plastics and metals why not create something that is more self contained and better for the environment at the end of the day.
