Bioluminescent Algae Jacket, solo project

To really make a difference in sustainable innovation we need to challenge the natural order of things. This project addresses a shift from a human-centred world, as we live in today, to a life-centered one; a life-centered world where human join with all other life. We as designers are responsible for our tomorrow, and therefore need to shift our design approach. Imagine a world where the human is among all the living. I conducted an autoethnographic research about a life-centered design process. I, as a human designer, collaborated with living organisms to design a situation where human is equal to life. The outcome of this process is a bioluminescent algae jacket.
