Experience a five-day celebration of contemporary work in polymer.
A polymer is a substance created by combining many small molecules called monomers in a chain or network. The term “polymer” was coined in 1893 by Swedish chemist and nobleman Baron Jons Jacob Berzelius (1779-1848). Synthetic polymers (commonly referred to as plastics) are constructed as bead-like pieces that are transformed by manufacturers into a wide variety of products and used by artists in many creative ways. Synthetics regularly add to the world’s pollution crisis when they are not recycled or otherwise disposed of properly.
