26 AUGUST 2017, TALK@UGLY DUCK, LONDON
Imagine the world of tomorrow. What are the distinctive attributes and features of the 21st century materials? Is it response to touch or light? Can we tailor a material?
As a material alchemist Anna challenges traditional material vision and extends material frontiers to the unseen level. She designs a material property by introducing time as the 4th dimension where changes occur instantaneously and are an integral part of material characteristics..
The goal of the project is to challenge our material vision and extend our material frontiers to a brand new level. What fabrics and surfaces can we make using innovative methods and techniques available to us today? This new natural non-woven material interacts with a human and an environment by changing its shape and location.
