MEMORANDIserving cloches shifting perspective on the value of plastic
“In a the near future, when fossil fuels will be scare, oil will not be burnt away and wasted in energy and transport but reserved for high value processes and products such as plastic manufacturing.” (Ray Hammond, futurist)
Plastic will be the legacy of human kind and has been hypothesised to act as the maker of the Anthropocene – the name of the current geochronological epoch in which humans have become the most important factor influencing biological, geological and atmospheric processes on Earth.
“Ars Memorandi” has been designed with aesthetic concerns, combining technological progress with crafts, inspired from artfully crafted 16th century collector’s pieces. This symbol of luxury stands in contrast to the choice of its materiality aiming to question how we perceive, use and what we make from plastics today.
