Focusing on the world’s current environmental issues, National Taiwan University of the Arts students Guo Yi-hui, Hung I-chen, and Cheng Yu-ti created a project that would help raise awareness about climate change – but with a twist. To highlight the fast-spreading pollution problem in Taiwan, they collected samples of polluted water from over 100 locations and froze them into popsicles.
The “Polluted Water Popsicles” line concocted by the Taiwanese group all look like fine-crafted frozen treats complete with fancy, colorful packaging, and assigned flavors. The 100 sewage samples all varied in colors and texture and were preserved in polyester resin.

The popsicles all look interesting and somewhat skilfully designed at first look. But with close inspection, certain pollution agents can be seen such as molds, bits and pieces of garbage, and the murky appearance of polluted water. The project was recently nominated for the Young Pin Design Award at the last New Generation of Design Exhibition held at the Taipei World Trade Center.
