Jessica den Hartog (1992) makes graphic objects from waste.
Colorful products to inspire and inform the viewer/user about the value of waste.
As a designer, I do the entire process myself. From collecting the plastic, recycling it and designing/making the products. The collections are various studies into the design of material, color and form.
It is a mix of one-offs and small editions for an interior that is decorated with attention. Knowledge is captured through photography and text and shared in lectures, teaching, exhibitions and book making.
I am also a teacher for 3 days a week. I teach ‘research’ Everything prior to a design is questioned and experimented to come to your own conclusions. The school is located at Utrecht, (Nimeto Utrecht) a creative MBO school.
