Final Year Project(s)
We have a tendency to throw things away when it has reached the end of its life cycle, this project is about extending that life cycle and creating a circular economy. Reusing discarded materials and creating new utilities and beauty.
Globally, it is a norm to crave for new things and dispose the unwanted and the old. It is especially so in Singapore, where everything is constantly new and refurbished. The author wants people to re-evaluate the things we discard, what is trash and what is not? How can ordinary and forgotten things tell an extraordinary story.
This project aimed to provide a novel perspective on the way we observe and re-value things, to disclose an undiscovered path for others to follow. It focuses on an exploration of a singular material, under-utilized wine corks. Small and often discarded, it is invaluable as a singular piece but amasses in potential as a collective.
