This project looks at design as an investigative and forensic tool. With an exploratory and revealing approach, grievances in the earth's biosphere are illuminated and made tangible for a broad mass. Central to this process are the traces that are left behind when environmental crimes are committed. On the basis of exemplary topics the forensic working method in the design around the subject of environmental crime was tested in short projects. At the end, a final design was developed on the serious environmental problem of illegal logging.
