This project placed environmental and socially responsible thinking at the heart of what students do. Students were asked to re-appropriate and find new purposes for waste material. Students researched historical and contemporary sources of artists and designers who work with discarded and found objects and matter and identified work where ordinary materials had been transformed and given a new definition. Students were then invited to make an artefact from found materials and to create an artefact based on the process of transforming a waste material by giving it a new purpose and value.
