Comments Off on Undulae turns cornstarch-based bioplastic into stylish lamps

Undulae is a series of table and pendant lamps made of cornstarch-based bioplastic tubes. The project explored various combinations of ingredients in order to understand the strength and behavior of bioplastic in its drying process. The end result was a mixture of cornstarch, water, vinegar, and glycerin, which was spread on a sheet of parchment paper, placed under a shape-forming pipe, then covered with another sheet to make a sandwiched unit. The unit was then held between two pipes on either side of its longitudinal edges. When the bioplastic was left to dry, it shrunk to create creases on the parchment paper which imprinted unique textures on the surface of the newly formed tubes.

A combination of photography that is both art and activism, it is a special niche and one to which the environmental movement already owes a great deal.
