Now that I’ve survived finals and the Spring Show, I am finally able to catch up on my journal. Here I will to share the final presentation that I developed for my sustainable design class, If Products Could Their Stories. The focus of this final deliverable is to provide an overview of the lifecycle analysis that we carried out during the semester, and to propose a re-envisioned system that attempts to solve the most detrimental aspects of the current system.
On a personal level, the intent of my research was to gain a better understanding of the environmental and social costs associated to our current food system. I specifically decided to focus my analysis on Iceberg lettuce because it is the most popular leafy green in the US, and its popularity is largely driven by how well it travels rather than it nutritional value.
Enough with the introductions, here is a video of the presentation slides along with my voiceover. Please note that this version of the presentation is slightly longer than the one I delivered in class.
Food access and sustainability is an area of concern that I have recently become conscious of, and interested in. Here is a link to another project I have been working on this past semester along with other colleagues from ITP, it is called FarmBridge.
