Newspaper wood by Mieke Meijer
I tweeted about this sometime ago. This, in essence could be a revolutionary thing. As a student, having an idea about something major like reversing the ‘Source - Result’ order of a natural thing like wood like what Mieke Meijer has done is almost limiting unless you have money to blow… but since the patronage of two members from design label Vij5 Newspaper Wood can actually be seen for what it really is… a useful and innovative alternative to actual wood, as well as a genius way to recycle paper.
When i think of it sometimes, whats greater to me than coming up with art via its known formats, whether it be clothing, technology etc… its coming up with a new material on the whole, because it acts as the source for everything else to build upon.
