Jury Comments: "The jury found this to be a brilliant piece of research, in which siloed concepts became integrated thinking within a futuristic framework. The jury appreciated the exploration of ecological and botanical interventions in dealing with the emergence and persistence of microplastics, and found the communication strategy compelling and rich. The range of scales in thinking and graphic communication make for an impressive package."

Jury Comments: A speculative investigation into the future of microplastics, this project is strange, apocalyptic, and evocative. To understand this project, you have to take yourself on an adventure that asks what research means in our field. They have thoughtfully constructed a narrative that includes site analysis, micro-scalar ecologies, and even a fictional laboratory that ‘conducts’ this research. You’re seeing the story play out, and even if you don’t understand it, the subject and story make you want to spend time with it.
