EXOTIC MATTER
2016

 

The Exotic Matter Workshop was initiated in a two-day micro conference organised with Lukas Franciszkiewicz (Takram London) in collaboration with SPACE London. The event was designed to explore ideologies of materiality, that seem mostly counter-intuitive and strange to the experiences in today´s physical surroundings.

By adding exotic properties to everyday artefacts and phenomena, unpleasant force fields or soothing transitions can be created, challenging our expectations, habits and desires towards it. Through hands-on practices, we are developing expressions of these exotic properties, that often show only a glimpse to the outside world like geometrical conversions. The resulting output is described in a more alchemic manner, where wishful perspectives can be seen through strange aggregate states or zoomorphic movements. A kitchen full of subtle narrative experiments is created, emphasised with input from professional expertise in the fields of nano-sciences and story-telling, towards further plausible exotic road trips and playgrounds.
