FRIENDLY ENEMY: JAPANESE KNOT WEED IN THE PAPER LABORATORY

Fr 30.09.–Su 9.10.2016

Cocktail 01.10.2016 5pm
Finissage 09.10.2016 5pm

An alien plant, Japanese knotweed ranks among the most invasive species on the planet. In a collaboration with a diverse team of experts, the designers of the Re-generacija collective investigate its potential value as an alternative source of cellulose fibers. The exhibition shows the process of gathering the material, conducting laboratory tests and experiments. The results are presented in a library of materials, prototypes, and products, serving as an invitation for further development and cooperation. And the plant has invaded the drinks menu, too. Japanese knotweed cocktails on October 1 in the Festival Headquarters.
