Abstract [en]

Improvement in Jacquard computational weaving technologies, and normalization of digital tools, enable complex multi-layer weave constructions. Developments of smart fibers, combined with researches into specific heat-treatments, and new experimental working methods bring the possibility to investigate advanced dynamic three-dimensional textiles. Bouncing Patterns focuses on challenging the traditional flat format of weaving. By studying the interrelation between shrinking materials and heat-treatment, observing the way surface and structure relate to each other, and understanding the influence of miscellaneous repeated striped patterns on each form's tectonic. Working on a Jacquard power loom facilitated fast technical prototyping. Observed in laboratory, variations of components have been tested in order to reach a precise understanding of material's behaviors, to find the optimal 'recipe' enabling to systematize, and reproduce the form generating process. The three-dimensional multi-layer woven material results of hollow self-supporting patterns, stiff and flexible. Hand manipulations complemented industrial production's tools. Compression and pleating methods have been used to modulate their shapes. Although a few ingredients remained unstable, the textile's visual expression and haptic qualities revealed a both sculptural and structural potential, placing the work on the edge of artistic and design practice. They could perform as sensitive unique pieces, or become functional raw materials with insulating filtering properties relevant for interior spaces or architecture.
