Mattia Cook – 1000ppm
with Stephane Halmai-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Carolien Niebling
Drawing inspiration from the IPCC’s most dire projections and from numerous reports, I envision a future where carbon concentration reaches a staggering 1000 ppm by the end of the century. What will this world look like? To capture this vision, I have designed three distinct objects, each drawing from unique narratives rooted in my hypothetical scenario. Firstly, a low-tech water bottle, ingeniously insulated to withstand the challenges of climatic migration. Secondly, a repair technique specifically designed to mend and waterproof worn-out tennis shoes, embodying resourcefulness in the face of the scarcity of certain resources. Lastly, a nasal device, boas- ting advanced technology capable of filtering and purifying polluted air, serving as a shield against the looming threat of atmospheric contamination.
