Close to the body + Performativity Matters (2014)


The projects Close To The Body (ESDI) and Performativity Matters (Mediaestruch) joined forces to investigate how the body affects the materials and how these materials influence the body at the same time.
A theoretical and practical workshop in which we reflected on the subject-object problem by exploring the dynamic relationship between the body, the textiles and the context.
An exercise that confronted the functionality to integrate the worlds of electronics, fashion design and manufacturing.

Workshop led by Dr. Pau Alsina (Estruch), Marina Castán and Dr. Oscar Tomico (CTTB).

Video made by Júlia Llaugué and Maria Hernández, students from ESDi Design School.
