Hacked Notebook - Mixed It up, Upper
Designer: Seda Özçetin
Inspiration: Collection “Hacked!” is an act of unauthorized upcycling of materials and memories. It is a play between time and value. It creates new functions for expired products. It is site and time specific meaning the materials used come from catalogs and such collected in Copenhagen from fall 2011 onward. So, the products in this collection also serve as unconventional souvenir products referring to certain experiences and memories.
All the products are handmade and unique, as there is no standardization in the materials used. Each product is up-cycled from another catalog or from different spots of the same catalog, so there is no repetition.
This collection is devoted to our mother Hamide Yanc Ozcetin, who has created ingenious up-cycled products through her life and taught us appreciate things, make the most of them, and not to waste. Growing up with this tradition, we could not ignore the abundance of good quality printed material both in terms of paper and graphics, offered free to public in Copenhagen. Thus, we saved the ones we were fond of, to up-cycle.
Description: This notebook was hacked from Hamide’s “H for Hamide: Mix It Up 1” print.
Material: 80 gr pages in vanilla color
