Local earths, design, and hybridizations
Creating in a context of limited resources and exploring the potential of earth.
Based on the Salernes area, its history, current practices and reflections on those to come, the second-year design students at the ésadtpm have explored the possibilities of the earth material and the local earth sector (Salernes clay, waste from clay production, terracotta and raw earth scraps), in an open approach to research and experimentation.
Various techniques, transformation processes and uses of earth, are hybridized and applied to design: raw earth construction, earth 3D printing, mixing and researching materials, to renew our relationships to earth.
Works by the second-year design students at ésadtpm, as part of the Resources and craft course.
