The graduation project “the Tale of the non-human” by Naja Ryde Ankarfeldt explores the artists ongoing research into the correspondence between material and agency. Working between art and science Ankarfeldt investigates the ecology of repetitive and dynamic patterns with the purpose of creating aesthetic tactile experiences.
It is a performative and interactive installation consisting of special designed wearable pieces made from lightweight wooden structures, which track the hidden movements of the body. The audience will furthermore get the opportunity to touch and examine an exhibited living microorganism grown from bacteria and yeast. This is a strong polymer material with a funny consistency and a potential alternative to plastic.
