Group Project

TU/e Elective

My role was to create the material, to create a final product video and together with others to map the behaviour of the interactive material.

Breeze is an artefact which breathes, as one moves closer and touches it, it reveals its heartbeat to you. Breeze is made out of an emdf shell and a soft breathing top. This upper part is made out of a flexible semi-transparent fabric printed upon with filaflex. The pattern is made out of repetitive organic shapes that are printed upon the fabric when in its expanded state. This textile, after printing and removal of the textile from the 3D printer, then contracts and a hilly surface appears.

The video

This final product video was created with the intention to give an impression of the final deliverable.

The process

Take a look at the making of Breeze.
