Investigation into the possibility of processing waste ink into new raw materials.
The research project ‘Afterseason’ looks to repurpose chemical waste. I analysed various shades of purple, derived from for example, shellfish, sandalwood and residual ink. In the material output the focus was on how to proces the residual ink. In order to do that I explored a range of new textile techniques and materials and build a library. Through collaborations with various design disciplines such as art, architecture and fashion applications manifested of the developed techniques. To support the theoretical and practical research I collaborated with scientists, architects, textile-, colour- and screen printing specialists, archives and research institutions and industry.
