For my project I created a website that investigates the construction of solarpunk. Solarpunk is a movement that encourages optimistic envisionings of the future in light of present environmental concerns such as climate change and pollution. Solarpunk encompasses a multitude of media such as literature, art, architecture, fashion, music, and games. There is not yet any released scholarship on the movement so I focused on the early foundations of researching, where solarpunk comes from and where it stands in relation to other related ideas. I displayed the results of my research by creating an interactive family tree of the different concepts/movements that surround solarpunk. I also included a written section that allows the reader to gain a basic understanding of the movement.
