the affluenza center for overconsumption

2019

In collaboration with: Bo Knoblauch, Julian Schlicht, Jamile Faller

The Affluenza Center for Overconsumption is an interactive design exhibition that examines individual consumer behavior. Through research and observations, we have identified individual overconsumption as a significant influence to the climate crisis. Our research indicates that a large part of the Norwegian population continues to ignore climate issues due to a lack of personal responsibility.

To challenge this consumer attitude, our exhibition tries to reach its participants on an emotional level by utilizing the human body as a vehicle for addressing overconsumption and its impacts on the environment. We declare overconsumption to be an epidemic. To cure the sickness, immediate action is required. You cannot leave your sick body, the same way there is no Planet B. By presenting this analogy, visitors must confront their personal responsibility for climate change.

To participate in an interdisciplinary design practice, our project integrated scientific data.
