Up-Cykle – closed circuit is an art
Gdynia, al. Zwycięstwa 96/98
Your waste can make a difference! The UP-Cycles exhibition presents the winners of the 1st edition of the competition organized by Zakład Utylizacyjny in Gdańsk. The projects were made of waste, thanks to which their value was increased, and the waste was returned to circulation in a new version. Three entries were awarded and one winner was selected.
With the Up-Cycles exhibition, we want to focus on the problem of overproduction of waste. We buy and dispose of products that are usually still reusable. Why? Because the cost of repair is often similar to the cost of buying a new product. The competition was based on the desire to look for inspiration and ready-made solutions for the re-use of items. A rather unusual combination of art and waste is to focus even more on the problem, which is why this seemingly impossible combination. The huge amounts of waste we produce are still recyclable. Also post-production waste is a great starting point for many non-obvious solutions. It is worth considering them in the design process and then using them during prototyping. At Up-Cycles, we are looking for designers who see solutions that are important from the point of view of ecology and the environment. It's worth taking advantage of this potential!
