Copy Nature: Elementary Sentiments
A cultivation of elementary value(s) in an era of financial-economic scarcity: metal + sentiment.

We desire to live a life which is both aware and luxurious. The cultural and economic prosperity to which we have been accustomed is getting pressured; raw materials, constitutive to our culture’s economy, are becoming in short supply and thus more expensive. Through this dependence on the financial-economic value of raw materials we have become vulnerable. It is a challenge to disengage from this financial-economic traffic, and in doing so attain more independence – both cultural and economic.

Can cultural value give new shape to economic traffic? Can we, in the game of supply and demand, stimulate a new demand through offering a new supply? Elementary Sentiments presents 10 designers who lend to those raw materials, cultural added value. These unique, innovative products stimulate and chart the course of a new, cultural economy – an economy that is independent of financial-economic value.

This collaboration between artists’ workshop, Beeldenstorm, and Onomatopee presents 10 talented designers who add cultural extra value by developing the economic durability of raw materials, both personally and sincerely, through experimental production methods: metal + sentiment!
