In the course Visualizing Complexity the three masterstudents in design Marianne Dale, Thomas Rokstad and Fredrik Hope Knutsen have worked on the issue of artificial turf pitches that are made from plastic granulates. There are environmental problems connected to these pitches because large amounts of granulates are escaping the fields and ending up in nature. The students have mapped the problem extensively by designing a Giga Map showing the system(s) in which these granulates and related problems exist. The mapping has included desk top research and interviews of key actors. The map can be viewed more in detail for its insights and conclusions if you click the link below.
