Product Design

Screen Printing

Readymade Remake
Breaking down a product into its components and building it up again
This assignment was to recreate an item by hand. I knew I wanted to use genetically modified corn as my material, so I started by making a list of products and foods that are made using corn. I narrowed my list down to Lucky Charms, Sour Skittles, and gel food coloring, because these had a color similar to the green dye used by Dekalb Seed to brand their line of corn seed. I reconstructed the kernels using a bioplastic recipe and my green grocery store purchases, then designed and screen printed the bag. 
The resulting object was one that was simultaneously a recreation and an iteration of the original.
