A TALE ON TEXTILE was a cooperation between Joshuah Howard, Lorenz Potthast and Jonas Wiese at URBANSCREEN and the Hamburg based textile artist and designer Svenja Keune. It was developed for an internal research project about communicative surfaces and dealt with textiles which are brought to life by technology and request for communication.
The Project combines a threedimensional, textile surface with the medium of projection. The organic appearance is supported by a subtle illuminated animation, which blurs the boundaries between real and virtual.The content is a 10 minute loop that follows the idea of a lifecycle of a fictive organism. Over different cycles the narrative story wins presence and space. The content is not a classical animation, but more a play with potential properties, behaviors and processes. In exchange with the materiality and structure of the sculpture, the textile and the projection merge into an convincing staging which can be arranged performative but also interactive.
