Paper Generations, Generations of Paper
Under the title ‘Paper Generations, Generations of Paper’ Yksi Expo highlights this versatile material from different sides. Martin Cuppen sets up a workshop for making paper. He also shows part of his collection of special watermarks and paper products. The graphic industry also shows what it is capable of today. Paper expert Trudy Dorrepaal compiled a selection of 15 special types of paper that are distinguished from each other by their special surface. Fifteen shades of framed white paper, smelling is allowed touching is compulsory.
Designers and artists
In addition to scientists and companies, designers and artists are also looking for new ways to (re) use paper. The exhibition shows a wide range of experiments and examples: from paper pulp as a basis for tiles, stones or furniture, to wearable jewelry, and from vases and barrels to intriguing art objects. Material Sense presents the paper samples from designers from its own materials archive for this occasion. Another special feature is the contribution of six designers with an Asian background, living and working in the Netherlands. Together they organize and design presentations and exhibitions, each time meeting the challenge with an everyday material. Each in their own way they show how innovations can be realized on the basis of the characteristics and properties of the material in question, by playing and experimenting with technique, craft, process, form and interpretation.
