ethically positioned speculative design
Climate change is the biggest evidence of the problems that could not be foreseen and prevented during the development of modern society, causing the ecosystem to deteriorate. In order to slow down this change and restore the ecosystem's balance, individual, systematic and political changes are needed. However, the problems occurring within the systems formed by societies, through disabling the balance of nature, cause the solutions to remain human oriented.
One of the biggest causes of climate change is plastic pollution. Ninety percent of the world's habitat, the oceans, is filled with one of humanity's most influential inventions; plastic. This pollution causes many creatures in the food chain to starve, poison, develop problematically, drown, die and to go extinct.
This project provokes a nature-centred approach and offers a solution to the difficulties that ocean creatures experience, especially because of the plastics they ingest and supports the changing balance of the ecosystem. The fictional product named Piona produces 'pyde' that contains plastic digesting enzymes. She mimics the food source of the marine beings and locates the pydes in their digestive system. As a result of this, creatures gain an ability to digest plastic and filter the plastic in nature via Piona.
