The Blue & Green Art Project was launched in 2020 as an attempt to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015. On October 25th, the first project was held under the title of "Marriage between Land and Sea", and the importance of grasping the series of problems that are connected between the land and sea was discussed at the symposium. Also, a presentation was made about various conceptions of sustainable development through case studies of fashion shows.
This paper mainly focuses on "12. Responsible consumption and production ", "14. Life below water", and "15. Life on land" among the 17 of the SDGs. The purpose is to use the knowledge gained at the symposium to examine the research design works that aimed to achieve sustainable development.
At the Super Global Fashion Workshop 2020, which is an event for international exchange of design works, direct exchange between participants became impossible due to the continued spread of the new coronavirus infection. Therefore, through online exchange with University of Lapland, ideas and design works were shared between the universities. The theme "What Happened in 2050?" presented by Professor Ana Nuutinen expands the dimension of using design to solve realistic problems, and it provided a valuable perspective of enabling speculative design to suggest future premonitions of design.
In addition, we introduced a mapping technique for excavation of local resources and storytelling. Furthermore, among the digital technologies advocated by Fab Labs, we introduced a stencil technique that utilizes a laser cutter. By using these technologies, we could attempt a new technique that fused clothing and textile design, which provided a valuable opportunity to expand the possibilities of expression through prototyping at the individual level (presented at Christmas Creation 2020, Yamaguchi City Hall). In the future, under the direction of sustainable thinking, the fusing of digital technology with fashion and textile design will give rise to awareness of the importance of creating new forms of expression through creative practice.
