Natural vs. Man-Made Materials: Insights Into Materials Selection

Description: Many designers tend to prefer and select materials which are “natural” or authentic over those which are synthetic, artificial, unnatural or man-made. This course takes a look at authenticity of materials, our perceptions of real and fake, how this has affected our ability to consciously identify the most environmentally beneficial materials and the possible advantages artificial materials might have in addressing global environmental issues.
