Post-plastic Age: Clean Couture

This speculative project of a hemodialysis (blood filtering) technology envisions an inevitable future where marine plastic pollution(in the form of microplastics particles - MPP) seeps into human daily life and becomes ubiquitous. A recent study estimates a total mass of floating plastic debris of about 268,000 tons, in which 92.8% are MPP. Despite our expanding knowledge of microplastics, their adverse health effects at the organismal, human and ecosystem levels remain unknown.

 

By speculating on a future body cleaning technology using a reference of hemodialysis, the design aims to raise up an argument that interval between present and the inevitable future depends on how soon human start to seriously take action on sustainability.
