Soft pink silicon sacks, linked together with hairy cords, squirm subtly. The movement intensifies, when one comes closer. Awkward feelings arise when you see this work by Bart Hess. It is an intense physical experience, that comes with a little discomfort, but at the same time fascinates immensely. Bart Hess is one of the artists that got commissioned by the TextielMuseum to develop new work. All works are balancing between attraction and repulsion. At the TextielLab, he created interactive ‘skins’, that move subtly, reacting on sound and movement of the public. Visual inspiration was the soft pulse of testicles. The installation consists of three pieces that move, twist and fascinate. Bart Hess braided an enormous amount of cords in order to create the basic structure. Together with the product developer, he discovered all new possibilities of braiding. At his own studio, the cords were coated with silicon that either forms a sack or covers the whole as a matt gloss skin.
