Abstract [en]

There are currently 300 foreign substances in our blood[1] that should not be there, and the count is increasing. Every day we are exposed to dangerous chemicals. We are exposed when we cover ourselves with body lotion, we take a dose when we eat out of our lunch box and take in some more on the sofa as we sit in front of the TV. They are everywhere in our homes and, as it stands; nobody knows exactly how they will affect us in the long run.

Humans need to be aware of this problem for it to be­come prioritised on the political agenda. Until we have safe, globally functioning chemical legislation, people need to know about the alternatives in order to opt out of the worst chemical culprits.

The focus of this project is on the kitchen items that comes into contact with our food. This is because it’s our mouth that presents the easiest access into our bod­ies for harmful chemicals.

This is an exhibition where visitors get to interact, experience and be educated on the chemical problem, with focus on dangerous chemicals in the kitchen. The exhibition will tour different locations around Sweden. The aim is to engage and encourage people into action to reduce the number of dangerous chemicals in their homes.

Abstract [sv]

Just nu finns mer än 300 främmande ämnen i vårt blod[1] som inte ska vara där och de blir fler. Varje dag expo­neras vi för farliga kemikalier. Vi utsätts när vi smörjer in oss med bodylotion, får en dos när vi äter ur vår matlåda till lunch och intar lite i soffan framför TV:n. De finns överallt i våra hem och ännu vet ingen precis hur de påverkar oss i längden.

Människor behöver bli medvetna om detta problem, för att frågan ska bli prioriterad på den politiska agendan. Tills vi har fått en säker och globalt fungerande kemi­kalielagstiftning bör folk känna till alternativen för att kunna välja bort de värsta kemikaliebovarna.

Fokus i detta projekt ligger på produkter i köket som kommer i kontakt med maten vi äter. För det är via munnen vi lättast får i oss de farliga kemikalierna.

Konceptet som är en utställning undersöker hur man kan synliggöra kemikalierna i köket för flera sinnen och göra dem mer påtagliga. Målet är att engagera folk till handling och uppmuntra människor till ett beteende som bidrar till att minska de farliga kemikalierna i sina hem.
