nuclear plates

Example photo


The purpose for this project was to prompt conversation about nuclear security and nuclear warfare through discursive design.

Stemming from a personal interest in dinner table conversations, I chose to focus on catalyzing conversation around a dinner table setting. I created a set of "nuclear plates" that were intended to be part of a single dining experience that would create awareness around radiation contamination in food. The plates were inspired by the nuclear radiation hazard symbol and the Fukushima nuclear incident.

What I learned: Thinking about and anticipating the user's reaction to your design
