I will be creating a portable and easy-to-use system, such as an indoor planter or a terrarium, that can help people visualize our planet’s natural environment before we started to modify it. My intention is to remind people the sense of “natural” in our rapid changing artificial world.
The three most important characteristics that a good artist or designer in the Anthropocene must have are “flexible”, “calm”, and “determined”. Being a flexible person, the designer will more likely be able to adopt to the constantly changing environment and think outside of the box rather than following the existing design principles. Having a calm characteristic, the designer will be able to work under extreme conditions without being overstressed and unmotivated. Finally, being a determined designer, he or she will be able to complete the design despite the obstacles that the designer is facing and the surrounded environment that he or she lives in.
