In Scandinavia fish is a common eat but more often the skin is discarded although it is a beautiful and durable material filled with interesting possibilities.

Cecilie has laser engraved and laser cut her textile-design patterns into the skin. This, is when the skins turn from waste to pieces of art.

Cecilie is suggesting ideas of how to use food waste materials, such as fish skin in a new way by translating her design motifs onto the skin and thereby turning it into a unique and valuable material, giving it a second life.
