Andrea S. Ling’s Designer Waste Awarded 2020 STARTS Prize

Canadian artist and architect Andrea S. Ling is awarded the 2020 STARTS prize for Artistic Exploration for her project Design by Decay, Decay by Design (2019). Acknowledging the inevitability of waste in her practice, she proposes to “design waste that I can live with, garbage that retains some desirability,” as yielded from a custom material palette of a biocomposites of chitin, cellulose, and pectin, derived from the exoskeletons of shrimp, tree pulp waste, and fruit skins.
