Temporary Exhibition

Berlin 2007

In the eleventh exhibition of the jetzt I now series at the Berlinische Galerie - State Museum of Modern Art, Photography and Architecture magma architecture designed a dramatic installation custom tailored for the 150m2 exhibition space. The design is based on experiments with the specific properties of materials, form, colour and light. Focus is an amorphous sculpture made from orange synthetic fibre that is stretched between the walls and ceiling of the exhibition space creating spaces with a high design quality. The complex and smooth form has not been developed on the drawing board or an the computer, but is created through an empirical method. It is the result of a series of experiments testing the properties of the extremely flexible fabric (Polyamide and Elastan) under force impact.
