This collbaborative work with Architect Petra Gipp inserts itself in the ancient dialogue between architecture and textile. It develops spatialities between the heavy and the light, the hard and the soft, the specific and the general, the material and the immaterial, through the interaction and manipulation of two different materials, two different orders and two different material states. Our investigation considers the impact of the selective qualities of the membrane, how its’ different levels and forms of permeability effects both the membrane and that which is permeated. The membrane constitutes our framework of transformation. A barrier is not absolute within the context it forms. Instead it is, in its turn, formed by that same context.
