Communicating Climate Change through textiles. Temperature Textiles range from knitted blankets, to scarves and socks and are designed to carry climate data and to provide warmth to the user. The manifested data shows three main drivers and results of Global Warming. These can be identified as Temperature Change, Sea Level Rise and Emission.
Temperature — Blankets & Scarf
By 2070, under a high emissions scenario, unbearable temperatures could expand to affect up to 3 billion people.
Sea Level – Blankets & Socks
The current Sea Level rise began at the start of the 20th century. Between 1900 and 2017, the globally averaged Sea Level rose by 16 – 21 cm.
Emission – Blankets
Once Greenhouse Gases have been emitted to the atmosphere they will have a lifespan between 120 to 1.000 years.
The physical exhibition has been presented at the studio of Raw Color during Dutch Design Week. The blankets of Temperature, Sea Level and Emission are shown with additional process. In the shop the smaller pieces Temperature Scarf and Sea Level Socks have been displayed.
