Magnetic Fabrics by Lilian Dedio at MX2016

The goal of this work was to explore new limits of fabrics by experimentally developing their familiar features through unexpected modifications.To create these modifications, different aspects of magnetism are incorporated into traditional fabrics.

The combination of methodically arranged, magnetically active and passive components causes a mechanical accumulation of elements and thus a dynamic rearrangement of the entire medium. Over and above the original intention to set the fabric in motion, a surprising set of innovative aesthetics was achieved. This work ultimately illustrates the relationship between media and shape by unique motion sequences.

This very interesting material concept will be on display as part of Materia’s independently curated exhibition ‘The Future is Here’ at Material Xperience 2016. More information here.
