The Beauty of Waste


The Beauty of Waste

I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I am frightened of the old ones’ John Cage (1988)


As a means of reflecting on my experiences as a stage designer in the theatre and cinema world in London, I have initiated a project that questions sustainability in the creative process – looking at how materials are made available, recycled and represented.

My project aims to open the circular economy of waste suppliers to practitioners, designers, artists and students.
