“Off-tangled” by Lara, Eszter and Gaëtan is a fictional energy harvesting kit worn by urban foragers to convert household solid waste into a useful energy resource.
This speculative kit presents a scenario where, through the process of plasma gasification, ordinary waste is transformed into Synthetic Gas, a cleaner energy alternative. The journey, comprising waste collection, conversion, and syngas production, serves as a blueprint for personal energy self-sufficiency.
It draws attention to the tension between our reliance on imported energy and the waste we produce. By showcasing a circular energy commons approach, the project seeks to inspire individuals’ imagination and encourage their active participation in generating alternate energy futures.
