“an aura of technological modernity“Hobbes was the genius of modernity”
My initial aims: To look at how modernity and our way of life today is effecting our world.
What I may look at to kick start my project:
-When did pollution and global warming first become recognised/ a problem?
-Stats on pollution and global warming in history contrasted with today
-Main causes of pollution
-Different forms of pollution e.g. Water Pollution, Air Pollution
-Look at case study’s e.g. Chernobyl and Fukushima – causes and how it happened, problems it created short and long term.
-Future problems and predictions
-Litter: islands, sea and effects on Nature. Primary research this.
-Modernity’s effects on nature, humans and animals.
-Politics/ Government: are they spending money on it? Is it being pushed aside?
-Fuel company’s and pollution (Making loads of money so problems are being ignored)
-Artists/ Designers inspired by pollution/ modernity/ litter
