    【Play Lives - Design Workshop】Balloon-powered Trash Racers

    2020 has recast peoples’ lives the world over. As the outbreak of the COVID-19 forced families to confine themselves to their homes, so has consumption of take-aways delivered in disposable packaging shot through the roof, polluting the world with mountains of solid waste and spoiling our future. In this workshop, competing participants will create and experiment with personalised balloon-powered racers made from domestic waste to race their way out of the trash. Fasten your seatbelt, escape this trash world!
