Unearthing the materials behind the making
Makerversity announces the last in it’s ‘Material Explorations’ series looking at Waste Streams.
Whilst the world wakes up to how damaging plastics are to our environment, we question what a world without industrial waste would look like. What if we only used locally abundant nutritious materials such as hair and food to create our products? What if we viewed materials as nutrients circulating in healthy, safe metabolisms instead of future landfill?
Join us in this lively debate led by Material Driven to hear from four Designers exhibiting in Material Explorations : Waste Streams who use Industrial by-products as the starting point in their creations and are spearheading the notion that waste is an untapped abundant resource that should be treasured not trashed.
