Today’s news, tomorrow’s textile

Greetje van Tiem, graduated from Eindhoven’s Design Academy Man and Leisure department in 2007 with project ‘Indruk’.

“Today’s news, tomorrow’s textile. The front page of a newspaper yields no less than twenty metres of yarn, making it possible to transpose yesterday’s news into tangible memories which can be transformed into all kinds of upholstery. When you look closely you can see letters, a part of the date and colour schemes appear from a photo. You are not able to read the newspaper anymore, but the memory will be kept alive.”
