We live in a material world, filled with stuff, from both natural and man-made materials.
In this CEU, we will explore new materials for a new age with the hope of progress within two categories: dematerialized and rematerialized. In the first half we will discuss dematerialization, that is, how can materials and products streamline their materiality, reduce their footprint, and become more sustainable in a maxed-out world. Then, we will address rematerialization, which looks at how can materials and products be rethought, remade, remanufactured with new ideas and processes to address sustainability and over-consumption.
