Vi finns i monter C03:31


Utställningen Imagine innehåller verk av andra- och tredjeårsstudenterna på verkstaden för konceptuell formgivning på designfakulteten vid konsthögskolan i Szczecin. Undervisningen leds av designstudion Kosmos Project, (Ewa Bochen och Maciej Jelski). Studenterna tar upp klimatkatastrofen och sin personliga oro, upplevelser och tveksamheter i nför den. De dramatiska klimatförändringarna är inte bara något vi kommer att möta i framtidn. Deras effekter syns varje dag. Vi hör om de globala konsekvenserna i medierna varje dag, men de berör oss också i vanliga vardagssituationer. Extremt höga temperaturer, bränder, torka och ovanliga väderhändelser inträffar allt oftare i olika delar av världen. Unga människor upplever oron desto starkare eftersom det i framtiden kommer att tvingas möta effekterna av allt detta.

  • Aleksandra Brejwo - Last Bar of Chocolate

    Aleksandra Brejwo - Last Bar of Chocolate Imagine a world where there is no chocolate...
    It’s hard to believe that the favourite product of so many people will disappear completely in 2050. Cocoa flowers, which, when pollinated, turn into the seeds needed to produce cocoa, have a specific shape that attracts only some species of insects. These species are sensitive to temperature rises. In addition, cocoa trees have special requirements regarding temperature, humidity and soil. Climate change impacts these factors, which could lead to the extinction of cocoa trees. The project aims to draw attention to climate change and its implications we will face. All this is wrapped up in a symbolic last chocolate bar in the world. The future may bring more than the absence of a favourite sweet; we may be in for something far more serious.

  • Alicja Fijal - Visions of the Future

    Alicja Fijal - Visions of the Future Imagine a world where we face a climate crisis.
    Sounds familiar? Or is it another fairy tale heard during childhood? The project offers a critical view of society’s approach to climate change. Glass snowballs depicting a dying world and the related childish naiveté serve as a metaphor for the way adults view the world around them, with unreflective revelry. The sphere in three parts brings us closer to the visions that potentially await us in the future. Atlantis symbolizes rising water levels. The Polluted City shows a world where toxic air makes life impossible, while the Desert represents the drought we are doomed to due to the warming climate.

  • Oliwia Lobozewicz, Anna Ruiz-Malczyk - Survival Kid

    Oliwia Lobozewicz, Anna Ruiz-Malczyk - Survival Kid Imagine a world that is no longer a safe haven and childhood is not an idyll; a world where your child doesn’t need a doll or a teddy bear, but a survival kit. Due to climate change, 200 million people will be forced to migrate by 2050. Many millions of children will have to face the hardships of traveling and searching for a safe place. The Survival Kid Project is a kit to draw attention to the fact that climate problems will affect not only adults, but also children. The kit consists of an overcoat to help regulate body temperature, a straw with a filter to purify water from contaminants, a flint to help start a fire, a spork, a flashlight, and a first aid kit. Everything is neatly packed into one handy bag with a child-friendly design.

  • Justyna Sajewicz - Antipanic Cradle

    Justyna Sajewicz - Antipanic Cradle Imagine that during the night the bedside lamp suddenly goes out, the noise of household appliances subsides and the lamps outside the window die down. It gets so quiet that you begin to hear your own heartbeat. Anxiety wells up inside; you pick up your phone only to find its battery down. Your computer and other means of communication do not work, either. There is no electricity or the Internet. You are all alone, with no contact with anyone else and do not know what is happening or when it will end. It’s pitch dark. Blackout, or an extended period of lack of electricity, is one of the situations that can happen as a result of climate change. All of a sudden, in the darkness you notice the Antipanic Cradle, a fluorescent panic toy. The object is designed to support the user in situations of severe stress and to distract him or her from the stressor.

  • Milena Jandura, Krystian Jandura - Water rituals

    Milena Jandura, Krystian Jandura - Water rituals Imagine that our grandmothers, wanting to stock up on water, had to go to the well, which was sometimes in the backyard and sometimes in the centre of the village. Imagine how one uses water when one has precious little of it to use? This question was inspired by observations of the daily rituals of the older generation, who, despite the current easy availability of water, have maintained habits of planning their water use and saving it. As the Earth’s temperature rises, more and more places are beginning to run out of water; we will all have to learn to conserve it. The observed rituals of our grandmothers have been recorded in a series of embroidered linen fabrics that once embellished the walls of homes, reminding their inhabitants of life’s simple truths.

  • Pawel Janicki - The Finity Gauntlet

    Pawel Janicki - The Finity Gauntlet Imagine a world without basic raw materials such as sand, copper or fresh water... Raw materials that gave you a roof over your head, allowed you to use electronic devices or simply take a shower. Our excessive exploitation has resulted in a gradual depletion of raw materials. What appeared to be infinite has turned out to be finite and will soon be extremely precious. A reference to the Marvel series, The Finity Gauntlet is a symbolic gauntlet which contains samples of raw materials which may soon become depleted.

  • Pawel Wilk - Rain Collector

    Pawel Wilk - Rain Collector Imagine that an umbrella no longer needs to protect you from the rain, because the rain is not coming. During the climate crisis, every drop of water is at a premium, so you need to collect rain instead of protecting yourself from it. This very idea underpins the creation of Rain Collector, a rainwater tank in the form of a watering can that collects water through an inverted umbrella. Its design, inspired by the designs of the Memphis group, is intended to carry an optimistic message, which suggests that even in the face of disaster one can still have fun and spice up one’s life by bringing colour and unusual forms into it.
