Elisava Barcelona Summer Programm 2023, New Materials for Design, short group project, concept for solid, flexible and coating material for potential light object
Project: Efemera (Catalan for efimer meaning ephemeral and era meaning it was )
Collecting of urban natural waste such as leaves and flowers of the platane trees in Las Ramblas, Barcelona. Every district has different biological urban waste depending on the human footprint. We collected leaves, flowers and bark from the streets. We cleaned them, separated human footprint
(cigarrettes, hair, microplastics etc.)  from the raw natural waste and explored different material techniques to put urban ‘dirt’ in a more poetic context.
