  1. 1. Designtransposal workshops: Reflective narrative in visualising toxic chronic disaster Katarina Dimitrijevic / KraalD MPhil / PhD Candidate / Design Star CDT Department of Design, Goldsmiths University of London/ GoldFest16 Photo: KraalD, 2015, Plastic catch, Hvar, Croatia.
  2. 2. KraalD is a social design praxis that revolves around Designedisposal manifesto & promotes minimisation of London's future landfill. Images.

  3. 3. KraalD, 2012, Boki-penetrating gaze, Cityself Anima, London, UK. Lindsey Hoshaw, 2009, Under the surface, Great Pacific Garbage Patch. How can we gaze in to the radical environmental changes facing us in the 21st century and visualise toxic chronic disaster ?
  4. 4. We live in a plastic debris era. In the first decade of the twenty-first century plastic production has quadrupled in comparison to the last century. Currently, global oceans are the largest unprotected ecosystem on the Earth. Anthropogenic litter is present in all marine habitats, from the coast to the most remote points in the oceans. Plastic and metal are the most prevalent litter item found on the deep sea bed. Plastic waste is concentrated in five rotating currents, known as gyres (Maximenko et al., 2012).
  5. 5. Model results for global weight density in four size classes Eriksen M, Lebreton LCM, Carson HS, Thiel M, et al. (2014) Plastic Pollution in the World's Oceans: More than 5 Trillion Plastic Pieces Weighing over 250,000 Tons Afloat at Sea. PLoS ONE 9(12): e111913. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0111913 http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0111913
  6. 6. “However, if an original transposedness on man’s part in relation to the animal is possible, this surely implies that the animal also has its world. Or is this going too far? Is it precisely this ‘going too far’ that we constantly misunderstand? And why do we do so? Transposedness into the animal can belong to the essence of man without this necessarily meaning that we transpose ourselves into an animal’s world or that the animal in general has a world. And now our question becomes more incisive: In this transposedness into the animal, where is it that we are transposed to? (M. Heidegger, 1929-1930) Lantern fish, 2015, Solvin Zankl Photography

Fear for lifeBag for lifeBag fear guilt helplessness crisis of identity socially organized Denial of risks - importance & need for collective action Core reactionsDouble life & apathy Implicatory denial silent endurance, cultivated distraction, disassociation via humor or hyper-facticity past present future Ref: Living in Denial: Climate Change, Emotions, and Everyday Life by Kari Marie Norgaard.

  15. 15. As I/me/we become more aware of the subtle ways in which we collectively avoid the unsettling reality of toxic chronic disaster, will we change our actions to align with the knowledge? Or will we continue living, littering and practicing in denial? KraalD, 2015, I am sea urchin, Croatia, Designtransposal KraalD,2016, Bricolage workshop transcript & mapping
