Over at #HIPUM HQ there are scenes of industrious activity: cutting, fixing, stapling… as our display units are being assembled. The design is intended to be lightweight and easy to recycle or up-cycle. The materials used are mostly recycled plywood offcuts and corrugated cardboard. The only expensive item is the acrylic sheet (AKA Perspex) that will cover some of the more delicate artefacts.
Here are a few pictures to show you the making process. After the event, we’ll be up-cycling some of our units to make more permanent display units, re-using what we can and the cardboard will be recycled.
If anyone wants 3 sheets of barely used 6mm Perspex (A1 sized) please get in touch!
