What doesn´t get used
Manufacturing practices serve to transform and preserve natural materials - enhancing their properties to bestow upon them additional strength or durability. As early as 1797, we have been gluing thin layers of trees together, imparting a consistency and regularity that wouldn’t have been achieved by nature. Today, Plywood provides a backdrop to our lives - from playing a key role in the poured concrete structures we live in, to serving as the raw materials for our furniture and flooring.
All of the below works have been created from the offcuts of that industry. A surplus material - although unnaturally durable - usually discarded as commercial waste.
