Abstract
This Industrial Design graduate thesis is a

response to the discussion surrounding the

question, How can Design move from Green

to Good? Three artefacts have been designed.

These artefacts respond to a context. Context,

in this body of work, is time. Time as context

is about knowing the before now, applying it to

the now, to positively affect the after now. The

artefacts respond to three distinct lifetimes: 5

minutes 45 seconds, 8 hours 45 minutes, and

10 years. The intent is to utilize a Natural

system, time, in a manner beyond typical

product life-cycle-analysis. Also included are a

series of essays which investigate and comment

on issues and insights encountered during the

Design process of this thesis.
