Midterm Proposal: Biomimicry within Design, Environmentalism, and COVID19

Some of the topics we have discussed in the class thus far has been Eco Materialism, biomimicry, environmentalism, and how these relate to the COVID 19 pandemic. In Linda Weintraub’s book What's Next? Eco Materialism and Contemporary Art, she defines Eco Materialism as "regain(ing) kinship between the physicality of human bodies with the physicality of the planet" (Weintraub, Introduction).

Week 5: Midterm Proposal Review

After going through the midterm proposals the three that interested me the most were Anne’s cookbook about the over consumption of meat, Lucky’s non-toxic paint, and Jose’s mushroom book and garden. All of these projects had some sort of food element to them which I liked and they all involved the use of mycelium which I find to be a fascinating medium.

Week 5: Midterm Proposals Review

           After going through all the midterm proposals, I really gravitated toward three in particular. Those three are Water Usage and Pollution of Livestock by Ann Suzuki, Common Paint as a Silent Killer by Lucky Shulman, and Nootreats by Anastasia Lewis. All three of these proposals share a commonality, which is creating products geared toward benefiting the environment. Ann wants to create an app that demonstrates how much water was used to raise the livestock that you are eating and/or create a book that describes recipes that limit water usage.

Week 5: Kristin's Approach- Half Creative, Half Strategic

Our last class helped me gain a better understanding of the design students’ visions and what projects they have been working on throughout the quarter. I admire individuals who are able to think so outside the box and come up with creative ideas, since I feel like this is one area where I personally do lack.
