18min video

During a residency with the School of Speculation the resident designers were split into research teams to research specific controversial pesticides and produce the information for an exhibition during COP26 at Glasgow's Contemporary Art Centre. The team was made of 4 people and we extensively researched Paraquat, one of the most dangerous and yet widely used pesticides. Paraquat is exported from the UK and used throughout America despite countless lawsuits and deaths. Our team correlated all our information into a map and timeline of events between the company Syngenta who produce Paraquat and the various legal actions battling against them as profit is prioritised over people.
