This design addresses issues surrounding the sustainability of earth and inequalities resulting from over-consumption. In our idea, the cat represents our playful nature and questions if we place enough value on the earths resources. The cat was chosen to portray this theme as cats are very skilled, deliberate hunters but can also be very playful and careless. Similarly, humans often consume without a lot of thought into the consequences. The plant represents new life and and valuable resources, that the cat is playing with as a simple toy.
