Strong Vunerability

Video, Textures PurposeAlicia Velazquez6 Comments

Have you observed?

Nature is so resilient. I have been always mesmerised by how plants grow through little cracks in the city. I find very inspiring this opposition of softness to the hard asphalt, of green life through the tough city interface. 
Through this video, I test and celebrate material textures which invite to become softer with our surroundings. 
These petals remind me that within our hard constructed environment, there is always a crack of vulnerability. A place to feel our humaness. 
Perhaps materials with dynamic properties will stir our daily routines, reminding us that our time is limited and precious.

I'd love to hear from you:

  • Do you believe a material helps us feel strong or vulnerable?
  • Are we ready to accept material vulnerability?

You can leave me your comments right below. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
