I. Issue
Over Consumption
Many items that we use day to day are useful often used once then they are thrown away. Plastic water bottles are a big waste item that become a large waste item.
II. Inspiration
I go through a large amount of water bottles a week.
I want to start to cut back on using these wasted items.
III. Design
I collected most of the plastic bottles and aluminum cans that I used over the course of a week.
The bike rim would have many recyclables tied to it an ia circular shape. The bottles would have many office consumables inside as rattles.
IV. Metaphor
Collecting these consumables for a week showed me how much I use these products and how wasteful I am.
I wanted a wheel of some sort to represent a circle like the recycling symbol. Also, I tied the plastic bottles in a circle. People use a large amount of plastic items, office supplies, cans, etc. They are considered consumable items and usually are not disposed of properly. My chime is meant to be a metaphor to recycle more and dispose of things properly. Collecting these consumables for a week showed me how much I use these products and how wasteful I am.
