Project – OER

In order to make our water from the tap drinkable, it undergoes an extensive process of filtration. One of the residues of this filtration is oxidized iron, in Dutch called “Oer”. This is a solid residual and can be characterized by its deep red colour. Designers Jetske Visser, Kirstie van Noort and Lotte de Raadt re-enact this filtration process on a small scale. Instead of producing clean water, their goal is the opposite; they harvest “Oer” and explore the qualities of this material for design and production. The coloring of porcelain is their first tangible result of this research.
