Polluted Water Popsicles

Aiming to raise awareness about rising water pollution due to rapid economic growth and urbanization three design students created this Polluted Water Popsicle Project. Water was taken from 100 different water sources in Taiwan and turned into frozen toxic popsicles before Hung I-chen, Guo Yi-hui, and Cheng Yu-ti from the National Taiwan University of Arts recreated them using transparent polyester resin. The designers also created  wrappers for them that represented the different regions from which the polluted water samples were taken.

A+++ in my book. I’ll probably pass on the taste test though.
