Judith Seng, ACTING THINGS IV: Material Flow, Design Miami | Art Basel 2013
ACTING THINGS IV: Material Flow has been commissione for Design Miami/Basel as the fourth in a series of experiments which investigate the making of objects through the performing arts in order to unveil the aesthetic, energetic and social dimensions of production processes. By looking at production as a dance, a play, a social ritual, ACTING THINGS explores means of making beyond the scope and tradition of design and management thinking.
Material Flow stages a poetic evolution of material, movement and objects over the course of Design Miami/Basel - seven days, eight hours a day.Throughout the fair, dancers will engage in a free flowing dialogue with material to create objects that express a unique process of making and a continuous cycle of fabrication and dissolution triggered by a continuous flow of material. A series of objects will be created each day to signify a complete cycle of production, only to be broken down the next day and translated into a different body of work, enabling new moments of creation again and again.
