When materials that support texts change, the content could be affected. This installation is a physical reflection on how the materiality could affect the text. From ceramic tiles to displays, each new supporting material has opened new possibilities for writing.

MATTERS, seeks to write through the manipulation of electromagnetic fields with new raw materials instead of the screen. Sensitive components to these fields will be placed on three acrylic drawers (45 x 30 x 15 cm). Each drawer allows different reading times, interactions and experiences.



We use speakers to create a surface in constant vibration on which we will place a mixing of non-newtonian fluid. The system respond by a proximity sensor: The closer the viewer to the drawer, the greater vibration intensity of the surface. The vibration excite the non-Newtonian fluid allowing the viewer to read some parts of the text that lies beneath the surface.




This work requires a slow reading.  This installation use a iron fillings, which will be manipulated with magnets to travel over a fixed text that never will be totally displayed. The blot moves very slowly and will cover parts of the text which meaning will be constantly changing through the movement of the magnetic filaments.
