The UN Climate Summit 2019 has again shown how ignorant the decision-making positions could be regarding scientific data and environmental agenda. Yet, these would be the same decision-makers sponsoring ‘environment-friendly’ campaigns to extend their base for political gain. Inspired by this unsentimental relationship of the decision-makers, particularly one embodied in the form of a highway sign on Henry Hudson Parkway in NYC; this project investigates a new social structure, in which the ‘capital owners’ and ‘politicians’ would have to comply with the scien- tific research. In 2050, pollution and overpopulation cause an exodus to the rural. Abandoned these market-driven production machines of the capital, mega-cities, a privately-funded, science-led, publicly-owned institution has emerged to develop methods and technologies that will help reclaim these mega-cities. Here, the inves- tors come and ask to sponsor the research and remediation actions. In return, they will have their ‘propaganda’ on the saline-water resistant sunflower colonies that clean the waters.
So when these cities become inhabitable, they would be the ones who let it happen.
