About this Event

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!


2020年是全球生活形式和文化鉅變的一年。新冠肺炎令不小家庭長期居家作息和工作;同時外賣食品成為生活必須品,卻因大量使用即棄餐具,製造出數量龐大的固體廢物,嚴重影響環境,遺害未來。 因此,本次工作坊的主辦團體藉回收得來的即棄餐具,讓參加者運用個人創意製作一架以氣球推動引擎的逃生車,帶大家逃離世界末日的威脅。
