Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionArt in coproductionpeer-review


This exhibition shows prototypes which study nanocellulose as a glue and an ingredient for strong all-cellulose material for structural purposes. The goal was to make an environmentally friendly all-cellulose material by using it as an adhesive to glue together sheets of paper. The samples were laminated together by pressing to achieving strong board-like material. All-cellulose material can be patterned, painted or printed, but also worked with conventional wood working tools such a circular saw.
