The World As We Knew It
For the past few months, I realized that humans are facing rapid global climate changes and these are all attributable to our behavior. Rising levels of greenhouse gases in Earth’s atmosphere are already changing lives for the worse, and some percentage of these emission increases are tied directly to our everyday waste.
That realization made me wonder; how much waste could one person produce in their lifetime?
Although I’m becoming more aware of my carbon footprints, sometimes I still can’t help but to use a big fat plastic straw to drink my bobba; or use a high residue shampoo to nourish my scalp.
I am using a quite spontaneous approach for this project: every time I go abroad, I capture what I see. By doing this, I catch one thing that we all, as human beings all around the world, have in common: the tendency to endlessly generate waste.
By looking through that, the intention of this is to make some kind of a reminder on our behavior and how it directly contributes to carbon emission and the climate crisis, even when we’re not aware.
