Material Matters - 01: Wood
Materials have the power to affect human experiences and emotions by helping us build intimate connections with inanimate objects through touch and feel. Whether they are used as a point of reference or the medium of creation itself, they are integral to artists and designers who seek to explore fresh outcomes, experiment with new techniques, and elicit distinct responses from their audiences. Material Matters 01: Wood showcases stunning creative interpretations of the common material across a variety of mediums. From utilising different types and textures to achieve interesting design effects to recreating its shape and structure entirely out of other materials to produce a piece of art, this edition explores the compelling ways with which the unique characteristics of wood can be cleverly drawn upon or manipulated to shape the outcome of a particular project, with insights into the key techniques featured.
