Graphite (waste) + design = Perpetua the pencil
Perpetua the pencil and the waste graphite of which she is made of participated to the first design exhibition of the Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art & Design, called “Art and Design, dialogue with materials”. An exhibition that talks about the interaction between materials when design and art are transformed.
Toyama Art and Design Museum
The Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art & Design presented its first design exhibition dedicated to focusing the materials of art and design works entitled “Art and Design, dialogue with materials” commemorating the New Home of the Museum. The exhibition introduced the expressive depth of works and practices that employ various material to the audiences. The large-scale installations, art works and design objects allowed audiences to experience the exploration of materials that provide inspiration to designers and convey their design philosophy and ideas. For the realization of the exhibition, the museum was very interested in Perpetua and wanted to showcase it, from the point view of recycled graphite material to the exhibition. Surely Perpetua helped the success of the exhibition.
