Title: Corrupted Earth?
Keywords: sustainability, eco-friendly, recycle, Earth, waste, global, nature, environment
Thesis: I want to focus my research on how we take things for granted and slowly forgot about this planet that we live in. Like Harvey said, it is constantly changing and it is unnoticed. Everything that is alive constantly changes. It just takes several hundreds of years for it to have effect but gradually Earth is suffering. Like the clip that Joel showed us on October 2nd lecture, I also believe that “it is not question of if, it is a question of when.” So I want to examine and focus on how much we use and how spoiled we are and how much Earth is corrupted.
Harvey, Justice,Nature and the Geography of Difference:
- “Nature, the idea of which ‘contains, though often unnoticed, an extraordinary amount of human history… both complicated and changing, as other ideas and experiences change… the ‘unnoticed’ aspect of this poses particular difficulties”
- nature- living organism that constantly changes
- enlightment- forces of unknown, supersitision
Timo: How he focuses on recycling and the shirt project- zero waste
Balsamo: invention-create new things & innovation- reinventions (how we need these two to help Earth less suffer)
I have created a poster as one of my portfolio during high school by only using magazines to recycle the paper. I thought it would go well with mosaic because to create this piece, many small pieces were needed to fill this big page and it was very time consuming. Just like this, to have Earth to this stage, we, and our ancestors, have slowly built the waste, not appreciate nature and take these for granted. I probably write a story based on a girl and her journey in discovering how living organisms are slowly going extinct, that we are living in a pile of waste, and how much environment is neglected so she try to find different ways to prevent and try to restore Earth from dying.
