Plastic Is Tragic Digital Artefact

BCM 325 Future Cultures Digital Artefact Challenge

My Digital Artefact Plastic is Tragic is an online movement and information hub built with the purpose of spreading information about replacing single use plastic packaging, with re-usable containers that customers can use in supermarkets around Australia.

I chose to target the time frames of mainly the medium and long term of around 25-50 years, in the ways that re-using and recycling will affect the planet, such as sufficiently eliminating waste in landfills and oceans, helping the worlds ecosystems.

But the DA also addresses ideas focusing on the short term of around 5-10 years. Identifying how customers will save money and notice a drastic decrease in the amount of waste they create.

I initially found it difficult to pin point a platform in which I wanted to display my idea, but ultimately decided on creating…

DA Beta Comments and self analysis

BCM 325 Assessment 1 Part 2 (Post 4)

Overall critical self analysis:

Throughout the second round of comments for the DA beta videos, I believe my commenting had improved from the previous round. This was not only due to already having a rough idea of what was required but also due to having a better understanding of the works I was commenting on. I was able to gain a better understanding because unlike the first round, the beta round provided more information and early iteration’s of each DA was available to observe.

Each beta video being 4 minutes in length also drastically helped, as I was able to gain a lot more information from each DA, ultimately allowing for me to compose a successful comment.

BCM 325 Assessment 1 Part 2 (Post 3)

Below are my most prominent tweets from weeks 8-12. For each tweet I’ve critically analysed myself on what i did right, wrong and how I could’ve improved.

Week 8

For my week 8 most prominent tweet, I have chosen this tweet based on the fact it ultimately addresses a real world occurrence happening now in LA, with the works of Elon Musks ‘Boring Company’. I believe that because of this connection to a real world occurrence, is why I gained 9 likes and 3 retweets on this tweet. I…

Plastic is tragic (The Beta)

BMC 325 Digital Artefact Beta 

100 word summary:

Over the course of the Digital Artefact so far I have begun various amounts of research and have started to post my ideas for a plastic free future on many platforms including, Reddit and Twitter.

I have also finalised the platform for the DA to be a small blog style website and have commenced building it.

This will be a space that the consumer will be able to visit and engage with images, links and information about the ‘plastic is tragic’ movement.

My research so far has inspired me to add multiple iterations to the DA including different ways to engage with the community in a positive way through online posts, as well as enticing customers to continue participating in the movement.

BCM 325 Assessment 2 Part1. Pitch

For my Digital Artefact I intend to create a solution to Australia’s plastic waste problem that is set to worsen over the medium and long term time frames of the next 25 to 50 years. My aim is to eliminate all plastic packaged products from supermarket shelves and replace them with refillable banks. Consumers will then be required to bring their own containers for their goods and use these banks.

I’m looking to promote this idea in the digital form through a series of blog posts that will then be linked to facebook, twitter and reddit, allowing for important feedback from the consumer.
