Speculative Matter

Speculative matter

With this project I was curious to explore the possibilities of replacing single use and short-term plastic packaging with better bio solutions.


I experimented with a selection of raw matter to understand their potential as new natural materials. This was carried out by hand using traditional manual techniques such as drying, grinding, boiling, sanding and so on. Through these processes I built a deep understanding of fibres, resins and binders and their interaction, which I have used as a basis for my further work.


Through sharing my research I found that the research results alone became speculative objects, which started interesting discussions around people’s perception of waste, materials and resources.
