The Apocalypse Project

The Apocalypse Project is a speculative design research inquiry that explores our possible lifestyles as climate change continues to affect the planet. It is a creative platform that asks specific questions about our environmental futures.

This project is authored by Catherine Sarah Young. She began this as part of the 2013 Art Science Residency Programme in partnership with the ArtScience Museum™ at Marina Bay Sands, Tembusu College National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Singapore-ETH Centre’s Future Cities Laboratory. She is currently in Manila as the artist-in-residence of The Mind Museum expanding the project. Do get in touch if you'd like to collaborate!

In the future, one will peel open a candy bar and then save the wrapper for a dress. Real fabric has become extremely expensive, and it has become normal for both rich and poor people to use reclaimed materials for clothing. Whether you’re going shopping, to the park, or to a wedding, plastic that once wrapped chocolate can clothe you. But who knew that garbage couture could actually be so chic?
