Inspired by the case studies and the data above, I proceeded to brainstorm, trying to find touch points and design opportunities in the big topic. The methods I used includes Rethink, Working condition, Future senarios, Adjustment and Transformation.
In this stage, I started doing some material tests and experiments from the environmental perspective. Firstly, I collected the liquid of the polluted water in the most polluted cities in China and then mixing them with some ink or food oil, therefore trying to produce some jewellery accessories throughout placing these liquids into transparent materials such as the crystal or the acrylic.
By doing this, the polluted liquid inside creates new patterns as it moves and most importantly, it reduced the environmental pollution to some extent.
As a consequence, I hope it will generate a new stage of the jewellery industry in the post-Anthropocene age. In this process, I recognized the relationship among the Anthropocene, fiction and the speculation, human’s behaviors influence the environment and then the environment reflects back to the human, as a result, this allow human especially designers to imagine the later future in a fictional scenario, then speculate and generate the new outcome of the society.
