@><#!!! the life of an overtaxed surface

‘the life of an overtaxed surface” by vera hausmann, till maria jürgens and vitus schuhwerk responds to ‘talktome’, a project brief initiated by professor andreas muxel at the köln international school of design. the square surface consists of a thin metal coated foil, transformed with invisible string connected to servo-motors and an arduino board, which senses, if somebody comes close. through squeezing and releasing, the flat motion turns into a spatial transformation and expands towards the user. this resulting surface dynamically generates new surprising patterns. the intensity of expression is determined by the user’s interaction.
