Paper Evolutions: Exploring digital and physical paper futures
Authors: Anu Seisto, Heidy van Beurden, Paul Egglestone, John Mills
Abstract: Paper is universal. We interact with it every day in a multitude of different forms, and it meets almost an infinite number of purposes.
This exhibition looks to the future. It seeks to explore how paper and print can meet new demands, create new innovations and combine with digital platforms to create new opportunities. It spans re-invention of existing uses and explores new paper products and services. From super-rigid structures, the capacity to insulate against extreme noise or temperatures, combining the physical and digital and creating web-connected capacitive touch pages or smart packaging that links to your mobile phone, Paper Evolutions offers potential paper forms that could emerge in the near and distant future.
