Slow Ribbons

Design LAB (department)

Focusing on emerging topology instead of static surface, Slow Ribbons is a two-fold project by DesignLab students. The above video and a printed publication reveal different views on works developed in the course of Wild Things, a class about the trade-offs and dynamisms underlying the production of distinct representations of properties such as distinct color. Acknowleding the violence of static reflections, Wild Things explored potential agency at intersections and interferences, asking how visibilities are conditioned and how surfaces break down. Slow Ribbons is how functions shift and forms morph: a creeping topology.

Participants: Aurélia Noudelmann, Ingrid Björklund, Naomi Feigelson, Layla Gijsen, Rebecka Hultman, Seungji Jo, Uri Meir, 
Lendte Oosterhuis, Carlotta Stolberg.
