Material Futures
Through documentation and analysis, alongside intense material experimentation, we speculate on potential plausible futures for one particular industry.
A collaborative project with Heinrich Ehnert and Johan Krantz. We worked with ubiquitous Swedish paint company Falu Rod, whose red paint can be seen as part of the architectural vernacular of the Swedish rural landscape. 
Through extended material experimentation, we were able to create varied speculative futures for a company with a very narrow industry, allowing them to connect this visceral Swedish colour and material with exciting new processes. 
We created ceramics, 3d printable materials, artworks, cultural symbols, pedagogic aids, drawing tools and stories from the material, opening the potential to develop a new future in Falun. 
I developed a book that documented our travels and the various industries that we visited.
