Hysteresis by Melvin Josy is an ongoing artistic investigation into the transformative journey of rubber, an industrial material that has become an integral part of our world.

Drawing upon Josy’s childhood familiarity with natural rubber estates in Kerala, India, the project examines the material's evolution and its applications in a contemporary context.

Through a series of critical design objects made from recycled rubber crumbs, this project reveals the vast ecosystem surrounding the material, unravelling its story from extraction to disposal and potential reuse. In doing so, Hysteresis invites reflection on the intricate connections between our daily lives and the materials that shape our world.

Josy will share insights into the Hysteresis project and his research-based practice at the Sydney Design Week Material Labs.
