Material Impressionism

Study

2017

The Egg Box is a cellulosic material; thermoformed, stable and industrialised, I destabilised these structures by tearing them to pieces to go back to the initial stage of the raw material.

Free from any shape, I reduced it to particles in the first place and questioned their aesthetic similar to the "optical mixture of colours" invented by the painters from the impressionism movement. I explored the pigmented spots and added other cellulosic-based materials, such as confetti, to play with a different range of textures and aesthetics.

Additionally, I re-assembled the cellulose fragments, with the purpose of creating new shapes, giving the material a new dimension by casting from either existing shapes or by hand.

Initially explored as a conceptual work, 'Material Impressionism' is a perfect illustration of recycling basic packaging. Understanding the material and repurposing.
