Personal Manifesto, Project overview, 5 images and 1 movie, Presentation in context, Prototype
Starting off with creating a personal manifesto in a subject of own choice. From this manifesto we made 10 problems and from these we could pick 1 to continue working with. As you will see my entire assignment is based on industrial polution and water waste.
From the design and the research I ended up working with water waste. I did a brainstorm to find a clear concept and ended up with the t-shirt as my prototype. Since I have never worked with a material like this, the process is shown, but the t-shirt might fail. I also made a graphic logo for the brand.

"A child who collects recyclable material lies on a mattress surrounded by garbage floating on the Pasig River, in Manila, Philippines.
The Pasig River was declared biologically dead in the 1990s, due to a combination of industrial pollution and waste being dumped by nearby communities living without adequate sanitation infrastructure.
A 2017 report by Nature Communications cites the Pasig as one of 20 most polluted rivers in the world, with up to 63,700 tons of plastic deposited into the ocean each year.
Efforts are being made to clean up the Pasig, which were recognized by an international prize in 2018, but in parts of the river the waste is still so dense that it is possible to walk on top of the garbage."
