4th year university project
The Ecology of the Unwanted : The project seeks to create awareness of the effects of environmental pollution and the devastating effects of Amnesia that have engulfed the communities of south-eastern China. The project proposes to create a number of pollution capturing and displaying devises that would float on the Hu river revealing the pollutants of the river, that was once used for aquacultures such as floating fish farms. These devices will act as live monuments that grow in size revealing the pollutants that have destroyed this local livelihood. The devices would be controlled and observed by an observatory tower that would also be a center for research and a gallery displaying the condition of amnesia and its profound impact on the livelihoods of the people of Guangzhou province and, in wider context, mankind.
