Exploring the dynamics and entrance points into material ecologies and plausible futures, the Laboratory of Narrative Materials investigates in resonances between aesthetic experiences and literacy development.
These resonances include synthesized materials, which might have conditions connecting to human actions and cognitive processes, likely to find in sparking, fluid, porous, volatile or amorphous thresholds. Further, these material transitions have their potential in being sculpted in a co-creational process into atmospheric agents, gelatinous neuronal-like structures or crystalline energy storages.
Designing experience-based languages aim to provide an aesthetic impetus on research methods especially in multidisciplinary gatherings. As a result of this, materials are transformed from functional placeholders into performative protagonists re-narrating and mediating the real and fiction. In a resulting alchemical theatre for playing, learning and sharing, a certain vibrancy is changing the scope from the known into the uncanny and vice versa.
