The past years confronted me with the pressure of continuously making new things. Rather than creating for the sake of creating and consuming materials, I decided to explore ways of creating and re-creating with existing resources, inspired by the shapes of roadside waste.
"Amended" is a pair of unique furniture pieces made of used polystyrene packaging.
By repurposing packaging, they acquire a new function, and thus value. They become useful, whilst retaining their recognisability as waste products of consumerist, unsustainable and destructive making processes.
Rather than personifying sustainable practices, I see this project as a way to start a dialogue about consuming, making and value.
Trash? Leftovers? Function?
Reuse? Waste? Surplus?
