=== Conclusion on Body care products ===
 +
Idea was to find microplastics in body care products to do other experiments with them. The problem in general is, to find a microplastic, figure out which one it is and then use it accordingly to the mussel study or agrar/ soil study. (e.g. can I grow an onion with a layer of plastic skin? Is the plastic stored in the vegetable? Is the microplastic small enough to pass the epidermis of the root? Is microplastic misused in any plant?)
 +
BUT a far greater amount of microplastic origins from washing clothes. (Boucher, J. and Friot D. (2017)) While only about 6% of microplastic origins from Body care products, about 35% of microplastics in the ocean origin from synthetic materials. It is especially unfortunate that these '''recycled''' materials cause microplastics in environments because they are sometimes considered "green". Sewers are neither prepared for microplastics from body care products nor from synthetic clothes. People might understand the danger of something you put on your face to be absorbed by your skin ( e.g. a cream) but less the danger of something that goes into the sewers or in the trash.

Data is difficult to understand. If I hear about 19.000 particles, I cannot comprehend what it means, I need a visual. So people make a graph out of data, or a chart ... or create a methaphor, a simile. I would like to experience certain data, maybe even play with it. Lets take up the role of a particle or multicellular organism and live in a virtual reality that really exists.

The problem in general is, to find a microplastic, figure out which one it is and then use it accordingly to the mussel study or agrar/ soil study. (e.g. can I grow an onion with a layer of plastic skin? Is the plastic stored in the vegetable? Is the microplastic small enough to pass the epidermis of the root? Is microplastic misused in any plant?) BUT a far greater amount of microplastic origins from washing clothes. (Boucher, J. and Friot D.

It is especially unfortunate that these recycled materials cause microplastics in environments because they are sometimes considered "green". Sewers are neither prepared for microplastics from body care products nor from synthetic clothes.

Virtual Reality Experiment – or “just” a visualization - some thoughts

“How do you feel with this data”

Find the unseen, something about trash and what happens when we try to wash bodies & clothes

break the hyperobject ( quote Timothy Mortons definition of Hyperobject.) Explain without a simplification or a metaphor.

Can we create with VR a tool for simulation/ experience/ visualization/ illustration for environmental issues?

The new finding, the new study, new paper – try to keep up, live correctly. Nowadays we are enclosed, wrapped and driven by data.

Unity and Blender have "Particle systems" - we also have particles - take these plastic particles, which are unnatural but not unreal, and make them virtual.
