Fibre Market        2016


Fibre Market is a research project exploring the possibilities of the Fibre Sort machine that has recently been developed by Wieland Textiles and Valvan Baling Systems. The machine can scan and sort clothing based upon its material contents, making what was once an inefficient and difficult process – relying on touch and sight – efficient and swift. For the exhibition Fear and Love, 1000 woollen sweaters were scanned and sorted. Miendertsma then compared the scanners results to the information on the products labels, revealing frequent inaccuracies. After sorting, the sweaters were shredded into fibre, ready to become something new.
