This critical design project hopes to challenge the common practice of exterminating “pest” species that are valuable to the ecosystem but are viewed as expendable to humans. I endeavored to create a critical design series of products with the frame that we have decided to eliminate all “pests” to extinction. The project is meant to cast a scary spotlight on where our future is headed. If “pests” were eliminated we would need machines to do their job in order to keep the ecosystem balanced. In three photo-composited images I created products for an insect, a small mammal, and a predator.
