This lecture is about the "Metamorphism" project of Israeli designer Shahar Livne. Her project speculates on the future of plastic as a new raw material. After digging up waste plastic from the beaches in the Netherlands and Israel, Livne developed Lithoplast material, a compound material comprised of plastic, minestone and marble dust. She then applied heat and pressure to mimic a natural geological process known as metamorphism, the change of minerals or geologic texture in pre-existing rocks wwithout a solid-state change. This material can be used for sculptural handmade products and it's potential for interior design applications is being tested at the moment.
