  • FLOATING IN A TRAP
    IED exhibition, Barcelona
  • This showcase is based on the premise stated in this question and its answer consists in finding its tectonic solution.

    Hence, as the context of the project is a small white box, it is feasible to deploy a dense wires net able to fix the garments. For this reason, the sides of the box are used as frame for weaving by repeatedly crossing, a single nylon thread through a spikes pattern. As a consequence, this system of lines generates a new material condition with new properties.

    The whole is more than the sum of its parts: an over scaled transparent tissue able to freeze the garments inside of its fibers.
    The design matter consists of: 5000 spikes and 7000m of rainbow nylon wire.
