material animation

Material Animation was a 3 1/2 weeks workshop by the 2010/11 MAS class at the Chair for CAAD, ETH Zurich, supervised and tutored by Manuel Kretzer and Ruairi Glynn and supported through Lumitec AG and Ulano Corp. It merged advanced techniques in parametric design, digital fabrication, physical computing, electronics and material science with theories and computational approaches to machine intelligence and sets them into a real world context.   It resulted in several kinetic light installations, made from laser-cut electroluminescent (EL) foils, which sensed location, number and velocity of human occupants and responded through a multitude of wirelessly networked components to encourage further interaction with the environment. The experiment is situated in three rooms of an idle emergency bunker below ETH Zurich’s Science City Campus. Each room reflects a different theme and approach to physically animate the distinctive material properties at an architectural scale. EL foils are extremely thin, flexible and lightweight screens, which emit a homogeneous cold light across their surface without the need for additional infrastructure.   More information can be found at: www.mas.caad.arch.ethz.ch/mas1011 www.caad.arch.ethz.ch www.vimeo.com/materiability www.responsivedesign.de Outcome of material gathering and brainstorming sessions.
