How to upcycle old newspapers? Mieke Meijer (a.o.) from Vij5 took a jar of glue and started imitating tree rings. "The product surprisingly mimics the quality of real wood" she states.

What a great post! It is great to see the idea of recycling becoming so commercialized. I enjoy seeing other go green. It is a step in the right direction and will greatly benefit the earth. Hopefully this artwork inspires other to make the step to go green. Great pictures, inspiring post. Thank you for sharing!

What glue did she use in making Newspaper Wood?
Did she spray it on to decrease time needed to make a roll?
I have many piles of old newpapers I'd love to turn into something useable about the house.
Thank you and regards,

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
