We’re planning an exhibition: You can do it with plastics which will look at how the properties of plastics that distinguish them from other materials have influenced design. The exhibition will open in May.
The brief is simple: that some kind of plastic is crucial to the work. By plastic we mean any of that large group of materials including synthetic textiles, synthetic latex, reinforced glass fibre and acrylic paint as well as Perspex®, polyethylene, polystyrene and so on.
We will make a photographic record of all submissions and post them on our website. It is currently under construction but we hope it will be live by May.
