peripheries in parallax: BRAVE NEW PERIPHERIES

The event is a series of four 1-day online Conferences mapping out the implications and alliances of ‘peripheries’ and ‘peripheral approaches’ through art, artistic research and related fields in society.

Layering Cellulose: Recyclable bio-material for structural purposes in furniture, interiors and architecture

Construction industry consumes a lot of materials, which also often are not biodegradable, bio-based or recyclable.

Naturally Dramatic

Sustainable costume design is still in its early days. Despite efforts to move to 'greener' processes, stage and film productions still make costumes in traditional ways with little regard for their impact on the environment or employees.

The Alder Project - How to understand forests

The project documents a zero-waste approach: how an alder tree can be cut down, researched and used for furniture while leftovers are processed as a new fibre-based biomaterial.
