Convenience is one of the reasons for high energy consumption. There are situations where we aren’t fully aware of our energy use. For instance putting lights on when arriving home, often without being necessary. Can we break this thoughtless behavior in a creative way?
Idea: Switch. A series of light switches designed for turning lights off. As usual a light switch has two buttons. The only difference here is that the off-button is significantly bigger than the on-button. Therefore, it’s much easier to switch lights off than on. Switch is a tangible, usable reminder of today’s energy issues. Making energy use less convenient makes us think more about what we should be using less.
