This was the year I had the opportunity to take an open studio course called "Sophomore Studio" where I was able to plan my own project. In 3 ideations, I worked on products and they're traceable impact to a specific environment, and how the buyer purchasing a product is paying to impact, and or, contribute to the decline of a specific species. I think if the radical transparency was there, fewer people would buy products knowing it impacted an animal they really care about.
1. Woodland Caribou and Scott Toilet Paper
2. Coca Cola's expansion into South America, Climate Change issues, and the use of Polar Bear in branding.
3. Tiger Balm, exploitation and violent history of Camphor production for a product meant to alleviate pain.
