Abstract: The Design Committee and the AMS are cooperating with APSC 261 to generate ideas for the new SUB design. The Design committee is considering having an art piece made of recycled items to inspire sustainability for the SUB Atrium. This project is making a recommendation based on triple bottom line analysis. Considering the purpose of the art is to inspire people and showcase the idea of sustainability, Interactive Art is the most suitable option for the Atrium. It could easily have impacts to the spectator. Moreover, it has a longer life time compared to stationary art. Looking at the social aspect of the art piece, people are interested in interacting with multimedia to learn new ideas. Meanwhile, this project proposes the design committee should let the students design the art piece instead of a commissioned artist. This will help students to gain experience and eliminate the expensive cost of art labour. This report also evaluates ways to minimize the environmental impact of the proposed artwork. Instead of recycled or reprocessed material, it is recommended to reuse materials that are available within the UBC campus. To reprocess material involves cleaning and modifying, it could have a worse environmental impact compared to purchasing new parts.
