About this exposition

The Art of Reverse Fabrication. From Waste to Taste. From Mass-produced to Unique. From Industrial Design to Art . Why create new ideas when an original can be transformed from man-made and mass-produced into unique? The Art of Reverse Fabrication. Upcycling – from Waste to Taste. The Reverse Fabrication project concerned the idea of improving the quality of ‘a faulty product. Upcycling takes this idea further, transforming the idea and adding value. Upcycling is more of an analytical and conceptual process that can also be an artistic action, whose aim is to increase the value of a given product and to transform a faulty mass-produced product into a unique item and designer piece. 1. How can ordinary and banal materials become a resource? 2. Can one expression (a ready-made) contain infinitely many, other expressions? This also raises questions about what original and unique mean. First a few words about downcycling and recycling: Recycling is a physical process in which raw materials are extracted and reused to produce a new result. Down-cycling involves combining raw materials that, as a result of various processes and techniques, cannot be separated and reused. From destruction to construction and brought back to life. From industry, the building industry and trash, we find plywood and hardboard that is defined as waste and regarded as useless. This material is a resource that can be transformed to construct a new idea and, instead of being destroyed, it is recycled or ‘upcycled’. Wooden materials often contain traces of how they were made, and we often find such qualities in leftover or waste wood. From destruction to construction and return to life.
