No Design to Waste
The exhibition Out to Sea? The Plastic Garbage Project created by Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, dissects the different components of this distasteful plastic soup in its first part Plastic in the sea. The composition, application and life span of plastic materials are fed to the mind piece by piece in Plastic in everyday life.
Playful but insisting Design Museum Gent enriches this instructive tale with a large portion of hopeful design, from recycling via upcycling to ecodesign. We formulate this exhibition as a confronting question, without imposing a definitive answer. Is a large production really that necessary? Are there alternatives for plastic? Can discarded plastic get a second life? Or is plastic still a suitable material? As a rule the design of this exhibition cannot be anything else than ecological. Waste becomes building material. Printed matter and exhibition panels are on recycled paper with vegetal inks if possible. Quite neat!
