WABI SABI @ Idea of North, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Arts

Part of MaterialDriven's contribution for Idea of North at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art is the curation of this geodesic dome - 183 different triangles, 50+ individual makers, leading brands and manufacturers... and I am one of them!
"Interspersed with triangles of engaging materials, are thought-provoking questions that invite the visitor to pause and contemplate the identity of the North, and ideas concerning material futures. These concerns become a common thread that unites materials of diverse origins and timelines. Touched upon are themes such as the Anthropocene, reclaiming and mining waste, structural efficiency, advanced responsiveness to the environment and grown materials."
