fold/unfold – Material as Interface


The project explores a »Ron Resch Tessellation fold« with motion. Nitinol springs, which change their shape through heat, bring the plane surface that is tiled in geometric shapes to life. Their contraction joined with the folding structure results in a breathing almost lively object.

The project was exhibited at the Designtransfer showcase Berlin in the context of Vorspiel »transmediale 2018«. I was chosen to create a representative object for the display case of the exhibition »Fold/Unfold«.
