The work was split into three main groups: mycelium, coffee and textiles. The students themselves grew the mycelium, the thread-like network of cells produced by fungus. The coffee and textile groups transformed waste products by combining them with new raw materials.
Each material was assigned three different work groups, who worked with various techniques and binders, which produced interesting results. The focus has been on questions about what happens when we break down one material and create a new one, and what happens with the new material when it is worn out as a product. Is it biodegradable, can it be transformed into new products, or can it be recycled?
The exhibition presents material samples, concepts and a couple of finished products.
