The Destination 2688 project by Katharina Pilchowski

The CERELEAC 18+ project by Leonor Boavida

This project shapes the shopping behaviours of citizens to combat climate change. The system rewards the purchase of eco-friendly products and deducts 'karma points' when the consumer buys products that negatively impact the environment. Earned 'karma points' can be redeemed for food and green alternatives.

CERELAC 18+ rebrands NESTLÈ´S CERELAC milk, a brand that suffered

from several boycotts after being accused of unethically promoting infant  formula over breast milk to poor mothers in developing countries. Leonor Boavida changed the purpose of the product from being used for babies and 

toddlers to a method of stress relief and calming escapism for adults.

DESTINATION 2688 is an artbook project for a fictional game, which deals  with the question of whether mankind will be able to accept highly developed artificial intelligence in their society. Katharina Pilchowski focuses on character design and creates a hardcover artbook with 64 coloured pages and an 

additional poster.
