Make something new and inventive out of plastic bags. You may manipulate the bags any way you wish – cut, mash, weave, press. Your final product may be a material, an object or an environment.
This Fall, David Zitnick’s Industrial Design Studio is building a press or RISD. The press will be built to the same standards as the presses currently in use in Buenos Aires in order to create shareable prototypes.
The presses create sheet material. Students interested in using the sheet material should notify Respond|Design (email@example.com) before Wintersession or again at the beginning of Spring Semester to participate in a sheet workshop.
