Fabrica participates at the Playful Inter-Action exhibition with PENDULUMS and SHIVER, two interactive installations designed by Fabrica’s researchers that put in relationship the tactility of a material like Alcantara with the other senses.

SHIVER is comprised of long strips of Alcantara fabric suspended from the ceiling; each strip embedded with thousands of needles used in the production of the material. Upon touching the base of a strip, a wave of motion runs down the length of the material causing the sound of needles making contact with each other to propagate downward, while the motion ultimately pulls the fabric away from the hand.

The exhibition, fruit of a collaboration between ALCANTARA and MAXXI-The National Museum of 21st Century Arts, wants to investigate the sensoriality of the material.
