AND THE WORLD WILL BE AS ONE

Senior Thesis - Parsons The School for Design

 

We are currently in a new era, combating mass species extinction and climate change. This thesis explores the political and social implications of the environment through the eyes of a bee while also exploring the meaning and practice of guerrilla gardening. With the last intention to bring humans and the natural world together as one, this thesis is expressions of growth, change, activation, and participation. 

The first act is three wearable garments that conceptually act as environmental armor made of a hydroponic textile that speaks closer to the natural world and humans coming together as one. The second act is branch off of those garments that create a more universal open source project designed to create community and creativity in a wearable interactive form of environmental activism.
