News Center Maine features Intermedia students making art with nanocellulose
News Center Maine interviewed Alex Rose and Augusta Sparks Farnum, graduate students in the University of Maine’s Intermedia program, about their work using nanocellulose as a material for their art projects. Rose said that one of the things that she likes most about using the material is that it’s environmentally friendly and non-toxic, while Farnum noted that she hopes their art also helps scientists to learn more about what this substance can be used for. “It’s about… reframing that work, right? It is investigation, it is understanding, it is exploring, it is poking, and who’s to say what kind of discovery is going to come from that?” Farnum told News Center Maine.
