Description [en]

Exhibited at Färgfabriken - center for comtemporary art & architectures, Stockholm, 5-16 November 2019 as part of the exhibition 'Unpredictable flesh - novel digital crafting, material research and encounters in interactive architecture'. Curator Anna Maria Orrú. Project leader Malgorzata A. Zboinska. 

Abstract [en]

The Pliant Flesh is a piece built up with a semi-firm body onto which two layers of thinner skins are attached with electronics in between. Pressing hands onto it, it will answer pliantly however with some resistance being experienced as firm but not completely stiff. When touched the piece reacts with small vibrations and lights. The vibrations and lights are then spreading out following their own pattern. 

In the Pliant Flesh the electronics are partially visible pointing out that architecture and the technology of a building could be merged and respond to peoples actions. The piece materializes questions on what it is to experience this hybridity. The black Pliant Flesh is a complementary work to the yellow greenish piece Soft Body.
