IMMINENT BODY – 2057

Timeframe for the project with stills from 2001 and Blade Runner

Timeframe for the project with stills from 2001 and Blade Runner. Extract from critical text handed in on May 2014

 

I used the two movies I consider to be more successful in terms of defining a specific year for the project.

It could not be less ​than 37 years but as 2014 + 37 = 2051 that sounds a bit weak or "too near". We are conditioned in a way to remember certain numbers better than others. According to Pythagoras' number theory both movies' years are masculine years (even). I decided for 2057 because seven (7) or Heptad is considered a perfect number. It also has among its names Fortune and Occasion "because it occurs casually and opportunely to everything".1

So, a little bit about the scenario in 2057 and the pieces I developed for the project:

What can happen with society if it is now forced to interact and understand things and devices in a different way?

How can textiles enable us to envision our ability to comprehend the boundaries and outcomes of the interaction between conscious materials and us? ​

The piece focuses its attention in materials now considered as objects and what is a device. The dialogue we will be able to have with materials that are no longer obedient executors of our will but a more autonomous entity that will demand different ways of handling and tools that suit this new nature in order to work with them.

IMMINENT BODY – Secret Tumblr revealed!

And continuing with the Imminent Body fever I can now show you the secret repository I kept throughout the project.

I used it to store references and it tells a bit about the visual and aesthetic journey of the project. You can find a wide variety of references, from Charles Burns and Daniel Clowes' quotes to stunning images of Yohji Yamamoto or Hussein Chalayan's work.

It is here: imminentbody.tumblr.com . Please feel free to drop by and use the references you need or to add me as your Tumblr contact 😉
