Roskilde Festival has had a lot of problems with young people on the festival dumping waste on the camping site. This project seeks to find a way to make the young people from the age of 15-30 aware of sorting waste during the festival. The project will furthermore be developing a design, where the people attending the festival can sort their waste during the festival, and at the same time, see the design solution light up the festival. The design will be based on the light-technology Arduino Board, to programme the lights to light up. The project will point out, how making a design with positive aesthetic properties will influence the user’s awareness of sorting waste and make it more interesting for the user. The design will be supported with theory from the course Design and Construction and will consist of aesthetic properties. The aesthetic properties approach is defined by the theorists and philosophers Alan Goldman and Noel Carroll. The empirical impetus of the project is collected with qualitative interviews from Svend Brinkmann and Steinar Kvale, with five young people between the ages of 18-30, who have attended the festival, as well as Lotte Fjelsted who works at the festival with managing the waste. The young people explained from their own experiences at Roskilde Festival how much of a problem the dumped waste is at the festival. The design is also assessed by the interviewed, and how it could be improved to be more appealing and how to implement it on the festival. Furthermore, Lotte Fjelsted and data from Roskilde Festival’s homepage defined the problem with unsorted dumped waste. The project evaluates the users during the festival based on behavioural design by Morten Münster, to seek how to change human behaviour with sorting of waste. The analytical approach is based on a paradigmatic example, which is Gleaming lights of the soul by Yayoi Kusama which inspired the design in this project. The project concludes that the young people attending Roskilde Festival, are aware of the dumped waste, and are also aware of how problematic it is regarding climate change. With a design based on a light-technology and positive aesthetic properties, it is possible to make the users aware of the problem. Based on the interviews, the design will also be successful and make it more appealing to sort the waste. The problematics with the design in this project are, it can’t be implemented, because the festival is during the summer next year.
