The society we live in is strongly affected by affluence and consumption. This makes us lose the appreciation of precious resources of our environment. The products of information and communication technology are characterized by a short life time cycle. The resources of our planet are limited and the conflict about it has already been started.
By using the mobile phone as an illustrating example, the project Inventarium is aiming to show our utilization of resources and the consequences of our behavior. With this concept the user of information and communication technology will be offered orientation with the aim to evolve awareness for their consumption as a background for own decisions and their behavior.
The project included the conception and design of the book, the website and app design, and the exhibition design.
In 2014 Inventarium won the Red Dot Communication Design Award in the category Social Responsibility.
