Constant wrapping of pillars with a transparent adhesive tape results in a complex, amorphous surface through the process reminiscent of growing of organic forms. One line evolves into surface that forms an organic shape of extraordinary strength. The entrance of the audience inside the volume transforms the sculpture into architecture. It was practically “found” through the act of chaotic wrapping, where a one-dimensional line (“tape”) slowly turned into two-dimensional plane, which then finally curved into volume.

Contornos
O laboratório criativo baseado em Londres Bare Conductive foi convidado a se juntar aos designers Fabio Antinori e Alicja Pytlewska para desenvolver uma metáfora em grande escala para a ideia de dar vida a uma coleção de peles têxteis responsivas. ‘Contours’ está no centro da instalação de tapeçaria interativa; uma série de sensores capacitivos são aplicados aos substratos de tecido suspensos usando tinta condutora. Esses sensores reagem à presença de uma pessoa nas proximidades e rastreiam seus movimentos, emitindo uma paisagem sonora ambiente constantemente modulada que lembra os ambientes de pesquisa médica. A ornamentação geométrica abstrata conecta os sensores individuais das tapeçarias para formar painéis gigantes, servindo como um loop de feedback acústico que alude à relação entre a ciência e o corpo.

Sound Sphere
An installation consisting of cassette tape wound around a spherical object and a device to play its sound. There is no beginning or end to the tape; rather, a small motor randomly moves the sphere as it sits atop the player, producing noise. The work varies in scale from installation to installation. Varying sizes of globes are covered with a length of time that is proportional to their surface area. When linear time is wound around a sphere, it is deprived of the relationship between place and time, and thus also loses its meaning (or in other words, causes meaning to arise).
