mLab IV - Materializing Realty


In collaboration with Ari Elefertin

Parsons The New School for Design: New York City

Our experience of the built environment is shaped deeply by the dynamic assemblage of materials and our kinesthetic movement through them. As a result of advancements in material processing, manufacturing and communication our relationship to and perception of our surroundings is changing. The workshop included an accessible movement-based warm up, with exercises in understanding the material composition of our environment. The workshop began with explorations in the sensory relationships between sight, tough, sound, movement and the surrounding environment to develop new skills to understand, describe and re-calibrate ones spatial position.
