ora et labora et lege


Exploring the dynamics and entrance points into complex situations, the Laboratory of Narrative Materials sets out new ways of articulation through image and material creation for new sensory perceptions. The articulation happens through synthesized materials, such as sculpted gaseous formations, gelatinous neuronal structures or sugar-based energy carriers.

Designing material-based languages aim to provide an aesthetic impetus on research methods and questions to arise with unrestrained curiosity and undisciplined search within multidisciplinary gatherings. As a result of this, materials are transformed from functional placeholders into performative actors re-narrating and mediating the real and fiction. In a resulting alchemical theatre for playing, learning and sharing, a certain vibrancy is changing the scope on new immaterial and material phenomena to make use out of it.

 

 

about Clemens


Actually, besides running the Laboratory of Narrative Materials, Clemens is a lecturer and research associate at the University of the Arts Zurich (CH) mainly on responsive materials at the Interaction Design Department and guest lecturer at Central Saint Martins´ Material Futures Department, London. Prior, he has studied at the MIT Media Labs, Boston and graduated in Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art, London.


His keen interest lies in design methods crossing physics and chemistry in multidisciplinary gatherings for sharing experiences on various test grounds. At the moment, he is starting to consider cognition as distributed in processes and composed in matter.
