From the work of the Cluster of Excellence “Matters of Activity. Image Space Material” (HU)
The Active Curtain Project is an ongoing experimental setting by the Cluster of Excellence “Matters of Activity” which brings together various disciplinary skills for the rediscovery of adaptive textile techniques – crafted and grown – in the quest to create an active basis for our relationship with our Umwelt. Woven into a curtain in the entrance area of the Humboldt Lab, various interactive and translucent elements made of bacterially generated and plant cellulose react to the room climate. The naturally generated matter moves, connects, swells and twists – without any conventional mechanical devices. The scale and the hidden speed of their activity are shown in images and films.
